The Estate features two huge undercover Entertainment area that will seat 20-50 people. The magnificent rustic outdoor area features a large BBQ and Pizza Oven and is perfect for relaxing with friends and family for meals. Surrounded by fairy lights and beautiful gardens you won't ever want to leave.
Central to the business is the beautiful expanse of olive groves and lakes with stunning views of the surrounding mountains. The grove of 3500 trees is comprised of a number of different, mainly Tuscan, varieties, chosen for their suitability for either oil or table olive production.
(Green and black olives come from the same trees - at different stages of ripening. Oil olives and table olives are different varieties).
The oil olives are harvested at their peak and cold pressed within a few hours to extract the Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil which has a superb fresh, slightly peppery taste. Although very popular in its pure form, flavours are introduced to the oil to produce variations such as Herb and Garlic and Lemon.
The table fruit are hand picked and debittered the old fashioned way in brine. Other products produced include: Caramelised Balsamic Vinegar,
Carmamelised Rose Vinegar, Caramelised Soy Source and Caramelised Chilli Soy Sauce. Assorted seasonal pickles, jams and honey are also available.
Because the oil is unfiltered - the top of the oil is extracted for bottling and the bottom layer of oil containing the particles is turned into a superb range of natural soaps which are made and marketed by Michelle under the label Bare Natures'Kin.
Michelle combined her love of aromatherapy with training in natural herbs to develop an extensive array of soaps, natural skin care products, milk and honey baths. She also has an impressive array of crystals, jewellery, salt lamps and original cards. The arrival of "Snow White", a beautiful Sannen nanny goat now means goat's milk soap and impromptu milking lessons have been added to the incredible experience that is 'Bare Natures'Kin'.
