Walk through the Olive Groves

First of all, we will take a look at the olive trees! These ancient groves have many things to tell us! Our guide will explain all about the different varieties of olive trees and olives, the harvesting season, their life cycle and other interesting facts about these great trees. You might even be able to pick an olive from the tree and eat it -you will be surprised!


Visit a 15th Century Olive Oil Mill

The beautifully preserved olive oil mill we visit during the tour is dated from the XV Century, though it might even be more ancient! It is estimated to be one of the oldest mills of all of Spain! One of the most impressive parts of that ancient technology resides in two huge wooden presses that measure more than 12 meters long. The visit of this quaint historical site is enlightening; it enables us to understand much more about the olive oil extraction and to appreciate the hard work it represents.


Learn all about Olive Oil

In a specialized gourmet store, we will compare the traditional production processes with the modern ones. You will discover how exceptionally beneficial olive oil can be for your health and beauty, and you will learn how to choose the best olive oils by understanding labels and concepts such as: extra virgin, organic, unfiltered, acidity, designations of origin, olive varieties, etc.


Taste the best Olive Oils

Experience a fun and delicious olive oil tasting, and discover new flavours, aromas and sensations such as fruitiness, bitterness and pepperiness! We will taste some of the most representative Andalusian olive oils and appreciate their differences. Afterwards you will taste some olives, and learn how to prepare the perfect salad dressing with vinegar, salts and flavoured olive oils, as well as many other culinary tips on how to use olive oil.


Shopping

At our store, you will find a wide variety of exclusive extra virgin olive oils and related products such as olives, olive spreads, salts, saffron and vinegar. You will also find other delicious local gourmet products such as wine, cheese, and Serrano ham, as well as local woodwork art and ceramics, and a whole section of cosmetics made with organic extra virgin olive oil that is not to be missed!
