Terroir Tuscany_Light Background V3.png

Tucked away in a secret valley in one of the last undiscovered corners of Tuscany, the ancient Castello di Potentino provided the stunning backdrop for a week-long immersion in traditional food and farming practices alongside panel discussions, talks and presentations with international leaders in food, farming, nutrition, history, social responsibility, archaeology and wine on using traditional wisdoms to innovate modern food systems.
