Oil festival, an explosion of flavors to celebrate extra virgin olive oil

An explosion of flavors, scents and folk folklore and an opportunity to taste the newest vintage of extra virgin olive oil. All this is the Oil Festival organized by the Municipality and Pro Loco.

Since 1993, in December, on the weekend of the Immaculate Conception bridge, San Quirico has celebrated its extra virgin olive oil, the green gold, in its new vintage with leading producers. An edition that leaves room for trekking, tastings on farms and guided tastings held in collaboration with AICOO tasting technicians, for a festival that makes green gold the undisputed king of Val d’Orcia tradition. And more music and entertainment to enliven the squares and streets of the old town.

A popular festival for the appreciation of a typical Sanquiriche production with the olive tree representing one of the symbols of the Val d’Orcia landscape.
