Sensory experience of essential oils and hydrolates in Chianti

The hike will start from one of Italy’s most beautiful villages, San Donato in Poggio, to appreciate a sun-kissed Chianti valley, Val di Pesa, rich in vineyards, olive trees, cypresses and aromatic plants.

The loop hike will take us along the river of the same name, the Pesa river, to discover the Water Paths, and we will savor the beauty, nature and history of the Tuscan territory in its most authentic and least anthropized part.

It is precisely water, a resource that is increasingly precious to the point of being defined as “blue gold,” that will be the main protagonist of our itinerary: the pure and free water that flows through the valley, and the water that becomes a pivotal element in the distillation process of essences.

The olfactory pathway

The experience will begin in the cultivated fields of medicinal and aromatic plants, with an olfactory trail that will help us recognize the different scents.

We will then visit the distillation workshop in the farm’s barn -strictly organic- where custom-made machinery transforms plants and herbs into unique artisanal products: essential oils, hydrolates, blends, roll ons, infusions and more.

Finally, we will complete the sensory experience by savoring the “Treasure of Chianti,” a special tea made from the leaves of Chianti’s olive trees.
