Products of excellence in Maremma

The Tuscan Maremma is a land of incredible beauty, known for its unspoiled and wild nature, but also for the variety of its landscapes, which alternate between coastal, hilly and mountainous areas. Staying in these locations is an opportunity to reconcile with nature and discover the small and large agricultural realities of the area that, for generations, have been producing food and wine excellence, recognized and awarded nationally and internationally.

The treasures of the Maremma are not only visible to the eyes, but are also those offered to the palate. They are places of fishing, hunting, agriculture, but above all of love and respect for nature. Wineries, farms, distilleries, farms that for years have been committed to sustainable production that respects seasonal cycles and the times of the earth.

Food and wine tourism and naturalistic tourism go very well in Maremma. Do not miss the opportunity to live unforgettable gastronomic experiences. Genuine foods and zero-kilometer delicacies for a holiday dedicated to relaxation and healthy living.

La Maremmana is certainly one of the best-known realities in the area, a farm and dairy, located in the heart of the Maremma, which for years has been producing one of the best buffalo mozzarella in all of Tuscany and beyond. In this dairy there are very high ethical and environmental standards, ranging from the responsible cultivation of the land, from the nourishment and quality of life of the buffaloes, to the production of renewable energy produced by the same agricultural waste. Tasting the Maremma dairy excellences, directly in the place where they are produced, is an unparalleled experience. In addition to buffalo mozzarella, in their company Inno al Sole store, you can also taste and buy ricotta, yogurt, burrata and other cheeses made entirely from buffalo milk from their farms. In addition, this company is one of the few to keep alive the ancient tradition of the cowherds for the management of the pasture … a real step back in time.

But in Maremma not only buffalo cheese is produced, but also that of… sheep! The timeless Tuscan pecorino. The Il Fiorino dairy has been active in the area for generations, a noteworthy point of reference in the national and international dairy sector. You can request to have a cheese tasting or buy them directly in their store. This reality also stands out for its high attention to the environment and animal nutrition, aware that a production of excellence has the primary need to protect the environment in which we work and feed on.

And now? What else if not a good glass of wine to savor Tuscany even better? The winery of the Antinori family, very famous in Maremma and beyond, is definitely worth a visit.The company is located a few minutes drive from our farmhouses, in Castiglione della Pescaia. Visiting the Antinori family winery will leave you amazed not only by the wines, but also by its beauty and architectural intelligence. It is a cellar dug into the hill, perfectly integrated into the environment, which minimizes the visual impact on the surrounding landscape.

In this place nature, man and work coexist in harmony. A mutual exchange of care and attention that comes to life in their vineyards and which, every year, gives rise to wines of exceptional goodness. We recommend a visit to the structure and the tasting itinerary. On site there is also a wine shop and a beautiful garden dedicated to lunches and tastings of local production.

Certainly, the prestigious extra virgin olive oil could not be missing from our selection of Maremma delicacies. For a quality tasting, we suggest you visit Frantoio Franci, a spearhead of oil production.

We conclude the review with a peculiarity, perhaps less known: the Tuscan grappa.

Nannoni Grappe is a leading company in the distillation and sale of grappas. A sip that contains the scents of the territory, not only Maremma, but of Tuscany in general. Visits and tastings are free. Give yourself an extraordinary experience by spending your holidays in Maremma!
