After class we were driven out into the countryside. We pulled up to a breathtaking place in Tuscany, the courtyard at Fattoria Montecchio, the first winery of our two-winery tour. The winery had been purchased a hobby and was maybe 400 years old!
The second tour at Casa Emma would be led by a passionate man. He let us dip our noses into three barrels of olive oil, the entire stock that the vineyard would produce for the year! No wonder the olive oil was so deliciously lime green, pungent, and would be the preferred drink to wine by some.
