km 0 trekking. In equilibrium between land and sea: visit and tasting in the orchard
In the Tuscan Islands MAB Reserve, man and nature live in harmony, contributing to sustainability. Michele Galeotti, with the help of his father and the involvement of younger generations, cultivates an orchard and a vineyard in Scopeto, on land already worked by his grandfather: enthusiasm and hard work are required to achieve a balance between the island and its inhabitants. With a short walk to the farm to meet these tireless producers, who will help us discover how the land is worked today, but also how it was worked in the past, when Giglio was completely terraced and the water, through ingenious works of hydraulic engineering, reached every corner to make it fertile and productive. In recent years Michele has combined his passion for the land with that for cooking: we’ll taste his simple dishes with locally sourced ingredients, tasting fish, fruit and wine, dining outdoors before a perfect sunset.
