Wine and hospitality are the two great passions we have at Podere Ghiole.
||And where there is not wine there is not love; nor any other pleasure for the mortals.|| Euripides(480 BC-406 BC)
Podere Ghiole produces excellent quality wine, extra virgin olive oil and Vin Santo.
Podere Ghiole is located close to the hill of Lucardo, a characteristic little tuscan village next to the town of Montespertoli, this favoured position places our Agritourism in one of the the most beautiful and evocative hilly areas in the province of Florence. The panorama that we can observe from here alternates soft and warm hilly landscapes to vineyards and olive grove: two cultivations that express the best of their character in these lands, cultivated here since centuries ago.
Podere Ghiole expresses the perfect combination between the secular traditions of these territory and the contemporaneity of the best productions of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and wine, adding to it the popular and warm welcome attitude we have. Because we believe that Tuscany is not just a travel or vacation experience, but a way of life, and that’s what we try to convey with our work.
We put a particular attention to the production of our Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that has many innate qualities linked to the well-being of every person who uses it. Furthermore, our Extra Virgin Olive Oil has excellent organoleptic qualities able to switch on healthy effects to the people who consume it. A long life elixir that contributes to maintain our body healthy and in shape, thanks both to the quality of our olives and the characteristics of the terrain where they grow.
