I'm the owner of Tananei farmhouse, I was born in this area and after a managerial career with international responsabilities in multinational companies I have decided to come back to my beloved Tuscany and share my love for the country life, its flavors and its traditions with Tananei guests. So I became a certified taster of Extra Virgin Olive Oil at a national level and expert of oil mills and pruning of olive trees techniques, to produce High Quality EVO Oil. I love to share my enthusiasm and experience with people who are curious to know how an high quality product is made.
We'll serve a 3 courses dinner, with a fixed menu, where we'll pair different kind of food with different kind of EVO Oils
