by Vicky - Spirit of Italy Tours on February 11th, 2010

For those of you in the Bay Area, please join me on Sunday, March 21st in celebration of my Harvest Italia tour. I’ll be sharing details about the 7 night/8 day tour to Tuscany, Italy and how guests can register for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure that offers an intimate journey to enjoy the splendors of the Italian countryside in Autumn.

I’m teaming with Sandro Costanza of Ristorante Da Mario ( and Barbara Bardelli-Rindge of Tesoro Treasures ( Barbara will have some of her handmade Italian ceramics on display and for sale. And Sandro will be providing a lovely space in the restaurant and Italian appetizers and wine. I’ll also have Casa Falcioni olive oil on hand for sampling.

Harvest Italia is offered by Spirit of Italy Tours ( and is designed to coincide with the annual olive harvest which occurs each year during this time period. Highlights of the family friendly tour include picking olives by hand in the heart of Tuscany on the breathtaking 10-acre Casa Falcioni olive farm in Cavriglia (a charming town in the Val d’Arno region), a guided tour of the Ricasoli olive oil pressing facility to see self-picked olives turned into olive oil, excursions to outdoor markets and antique fairs, countryside visits to local wineries, Italian cooking demonstrations, and much more.

I hope too see many of you on March 21st! Ci vediamo! Vicky!

P.S. I originally posted the event date as March 14th. Please make a note of the revised event date, Sunday, March 21st.
