Typical products of Tuscany
Tuscany has a long tradition of fine cuisine. Here in the Upper Maremma you can sample traditional dishes prepared with fresh, quality ingredients. Hunting is very popular in the area and many restaurants offer menus based on local game such as wild boar, pheasant, hare and deer.
For lovers of fine wine, we recommend a visit to the nearby vineyards of Montalcino, home to the famous Brunello wines, or to Montepulciano (Rosso di Montepulciano), Scansano for its Morellino, San Gimignano and Monteriggioni for the Chianti. Civitella Marittima is located in the Montecucco D.O.C. region. All local restaurants have an extensive wine list.
We are always happy to recommend other fine places to eat during your stay with us.
Also of interest are the many village festivals held in the months of June, July and August, where you can find a selection dishes prepared in the local tradition.
In November, it’s possible, upon request, to participate to the olive harvesting activities and to visit one of the many olive presses of the area which produce excellent olive oil. We organise visits to an olive farm inclusive of home-made meal and olive oil tasting. This offer is only available to our guests.
We can also help you arrange cooking lessons in the area.
