While driving around Tuscany a friend and I visited Podere Le Fornaci, an out-of-the-way dairy farm in Greve in Chianti where we enjoyed an exclusive tour and lunchtime tasting of organic cheeses made from goat’s milk. Situated on 74 acres of gorgeous Tuscan scenery, the farm is home to around 100 Swiss goats who pasture on its picturesque rolling fields.
Majestic cypresses line the drive leading to the farm like sentinels

A former head chef, Michele left an illustrious restaurant in Milan to become a cheese-maker
Tuscan landscape as an imposing fleet of clouds rolled in
Me as I eagerly anticipated the cheese and wine pairings in the farm’s charmingly rustic kitchen/dining area
