Tenuta San Carlo: Rice & Gelato

An Organic Taste of Southern Tuscany


Located in the heart of Maremma, Southern Tuscany, the farmland of Tenuta San Carlo awaits Italy Segreta’s clients! Once you arrive, you will pass the property’s old wooden gate entering the cypress-lined drive up to the farm. 


The tour – available in either English or Italian – begins with a dive into the history of Tenuta San Carlo’s four-generation family and the special rice varieties that grow on their 400 hectares farm, which is surrounded by wild landscapes. The family carefully tends to every step of the farming process of their certified organic crops, from planting to harvesting, to ensure the highest quality of their products. 


After a visit to the fields, you will be compensated with the best gelato in the area, made by the local gelateria using Tenuta San Carlo’s rice. The tour will end with a picnic table set right under the stone pine trees with views onto the heritage breed Maremmana cattle and horses. As a departing gift from the farm, you will be gifted a half-kilo box of Tenuta San Carlo Organic Carnaroli Rice to take home a taste of Tuscany!
