Another major event in the social calendar for Montisi is our festival celebrating the Extra Virgin Olive oil harvest at the end of October/beginning of November.

Each contrada or district will be cooking a series of fantastic lunches and dinners based around the local oil and there are stalls selling not only oil but other local produce and crafts, maybe even a few antiques.

Olive oil tastings can be arranged and the produce really does taste different from different areas! Stay with us a bit longer and combine your activities with the truffle festival in nearby San Giovanni d’Asso held in November for a real gastronomic treat – see Events for more details.
