We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our To Tuscany clients around the world a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and best wishes for the many religious celebrations over this period.

Below is the announcement of the photocompetition and video competition winners for 2009 and a link so that you can view all the entries.  We had some fantastic entries this year and would like to thank you all for taking the time to send your memories to us.  Our 2010 photocompetition starts from January so if you are returning to Italy with us, dont forget to send us your favourite photos.

2009 Photo-competition and video competition winners.
 
We had many entries for our photo competition this year and we would like to thank you all for sending them to us and for the quality of the photos you all took.

There can only be one winner though and after much deliberation we decided that this photo with its stunning image of the MORNING MIST looking back towards Podere La Casetta sent in by Brad Hays of the USA was the winner.

Brad wins a hamper of Tuscan produce which will be arriving in time to be enjoyed for Christmas.

All the 2009 entries can be viewed using the following link, you can also add your comments.

Harvesting olives
During your stay with us in Tuscany, you will no doubt have noticed the many olive trees in the grounds of your villa or apartment and the surrounding areas.  The olives are harvested by hand in October and November and are taken to the local vineyards for pressing and packaging (click here for information on the olive harvest).

To Tuscany is once again able to offer exclusively a bottle of exquisite oil from the Casanuova di Ama winery (normally only available in the Chianti); we have stocks of their 2009 first pressed, Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The price is just 14.99 GBP per 250ml bottle which includes postage and packing within the UK - we can post to any destination, please contact us for postage rates.

The olives were picked by hand and have been pressed and bottled using
traditional methods with the help of local independent producers. Casanuova Di Ama has labelled each of the bottles which are typically Tuscan with a lip for easy pouring and each contains a scroll explaining where the oil is from and how its been produced.  To learn more about the Casanuova di Ama vineyard, please visit their website: Casanuova di Ama vineyard
 
If you would like to order a bottle as a reminder of your holiday or as a delayed Christmas present for a food lover, please contact Lisa Leggate by email at lisa@to-tuscany.com or by phone on +44 207 193 7782 with details of how many bottles you would like to order, your payment details and the delivery address for the oil. If you would like to send one as a gift we can enclose a gift card free of charge. (Please let us know when ordering what you would like printed on the card)
