Hike & Flowers: essential oils experience in Chianti


A beautiful walk through cultivated and fragrant fields in the heart of Chianti with essential oils experience

by  WeHike

We will start from one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, San Donato in Poggio, to appreciate a sunny Chianti valley, the Val di Pesa, rich in vineyards, olive trees, cypresses, and aromatic plants. 

We will descend along a path that gently slopes towards the Pesa river to admire its less anthropized and more authentic part. Our route is part of the project "Water Paths in Tuscany", which has been created to enhance the cultural, historical, naturalistic and anthropological role that water plays in the development of our communities.

After admiring the natural beauty of the river, we will hike back to reach the farm's cultivated fields where our sensory experience will begin. Here, too, we will understand the importance of water, defined "oro blu" (blue gold), that is used for the process of distilling plants. Through this sensorial and educational experience, you will get to know about the healing properties of essential oils and hydrolats and the various distillation processes using state-of-the-art machinery.

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

Finally, we will complete the sensory experience by savoring the "Tesoro del Chianti" (Treasure of Chianti), a special tea made with the leaves of Chianti olive trees.
