It's full autumn with the olives still showing their characteristic shade of green and the trees turning fantastic, variegated hues. The first mists begin to appear and a chill can be felt in the air. It's time for the rite of the “brucatura” of the olives, which has remained essentially unaltered since Etruscan times in its simplicity of technique and tools. You'll see how the olives are pressed and then gather around a blazing fire to learn Italian. Terre di Baccio and Buondonno are farms, but also places dedicated to making its guests feel truly welcome. They are situated near Greve and Castellina in Chianti. Beautiful original furniture, carefully chosen ingredients and skillful preparation of breakfast and meals, which are accompanied by a selection of quality wines and olive oil.
