Where in the world

Val d’Orcia, Italy

Explore Italy’s rich culture and gastronomic history as you spend half a day in a Tuscan farmhouse, tasting some of the finest cheese this country has to offer. Your destination sits within the stunning Val d’Orcia National Park, close to the medieval villages of Pienza and Montepulciano.

Admire the rolling hills and lush woodlands of this remarkable region as you travel to a typically Tuscan farmhouse. The landscape has been reimagined by artists time and time again through the ages, and you don’t have to spend long here to see why.

Against the awe-inspiring backdrop, taste a range of cheeses and learn about the inner-workings of the estate. The owner will talk you through the process of making both pecorino and ricotta, both of which are found in many well-known Italian dishes. After this session, enjoy a tour of laboratory. Here, you will see the cheeses being made and learn about the process in more detail.
