This was such a fun experience! Not only did we learn about the olives, land, and production, we had a wonderful tasting. This is a lovely family owned business that clearly produces high quality olive oil. Highly recommended!

The tour and the meal were both wonderful. We loved walking around the olive groves and learning more bout how olive oil is made as well as the different varieties of olives and how they affect the flavour of the oil

The visit was nice. The girl who did the tasting for us and gave the talk, is the person in charge of the laboratory, very nice. Very good communicator. Oils of excellent quality. highly recommended

Videos about agricultural activities are missing. The tasting could include bread and some cheeses.

the tour guide at the olive factory was brilliant and very nice...very interesting.
