Le Marche Tours
In Le Marche, we can offer a wide selection of olive oil and wine appreciation tours both in central Le Marche, mainly in the Senigallia area on the Adriatic coast and also in the southern provinces of Le Marche.
Near Senigallia, we have the choice of four different wine producers, two of which are certified organic and two wonderful producers of fine olive oils, much of the oil being monovarietal and also organic.
The Frantoio Tomassetti near Senigallia is a favourite of ours and Andrea Tomassetti who produces wonderful organic and monovarietal olive oils has held tastings in London and the east of England over the past years and now works closely with us.
In the south of the Le Marche region we work with three wine producers, two of which are certified organic and also two olive oil producers, both of which produce oils that are certified organic. Frantoio Silvestri Rosina based near San Benedetto produces award winning olive oils and they are some of the best oils we have ever tried at our tasting events both in Italy and in the UK. Their oils are also available in the UK and our olive oil classes that are held in Italy are proving very popular.
See sample tours below:
Azienda La Fontursia Organic Wines
Azienda La Fontursia produce organic white wines, Falerio, Offida Pecorino and two Marche Passerinas; the reds include several Rosso Picenos, Marche Rosato and a Montepulciano d'Abruzzo.
A special feature they also employ as part of their wine production is the use of customised bottle labels, using designs and images from different artists.

Tomassetti artisan produced olive oils
The Family Tomassetti produce wonderful blended extra virgin olive oil in the central Le Marche region of Ancona, but their limited production of mono-varietal Raggia extra virgin olive oil is truly outstanding and has a subtle aroma of grass mixed with walnuts. More Olive Oil Tours in Le Marche →
Truffle Tours in Acqualanga
Vinitours are pleased to be now working closely with T & C Tentazioni Tartufi, one of the top Truffle companies in the Le Marche region and possibly in the whole of Italy. A typical one-day tour including a truffle hunt for 8 or more persons, is combined with lunch and a visit to the truffle farm to observe the truffles being processed in the late afternoon.
