Not only wine. Villa "Rosa dei Venti" is well-known for its production of extra-virgin olive oil. As the typical natural backdrop of the Valdichiana requires, the orderly rows of olive trees, the vineyards, the cornfields and the fields of sunflowers are placed side by side so as to create a beautiful view. There are approximately 300 plants in the following range: Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo and Pendolino.
Hand-picked olives are put into crates and taken to the oil mill where they are pressed within 48 hours to avoid oxidation and to preserve the organoleptic properties and peculiarities connected to taste and olfaction.
The extra-virgin olive oil of Villa "Rosa dei Venti" has a golden colour verging on green, fruity taste and strong flavours. Available in 0,50 l – 0,75 l bottles. As for wine, oil is produced in little quantities only for the use of the holiday farm guests.
