Tuscan Agriturismo (Tourism Farm) - Tuscany, Italy
A typical Italian agritourismo is a working farm often dating back 100s of years that offers rooms for rent and home cooked meals made from locally produced vegetables, fruits, meats, and wines. This agriturismo, located in the valley three miles from Pienza, includes a 1000-year old tower.
We and our guests stay here during our wedding festivities. The food was sublime. Luciano, the owner, arranges for his wife to prepare a meal that includes bruschetta and crostini made with truffles, pecorino cheese, and sundried tomatoes and series of main plates ranging from freshly made pillows of ricotta-stuffed ravioli to Florentine steaks.
