Overview
What to Expect
Itinerary

The activity consists of:
1. Visit an olive grove of more than 300 years.
Do you want to meet an olive grove? Walk through centuries-old olive groves where we will show you what an olive tree is, how they arrived in the Iberian Peninsula and its importance throughout history.
And not only can you visit an organic olive grove, also discover all the work that is done during the year to ensure you get a quality EVOO, with special attention to our cornicabra variety.
2. Oil tasting course:
The best way to learn to differentiate the qualities of olive oils and understand why each one is produced.
You can taste different samples and we will solve doubts such as:
Why are oils that itch or bitter more than others?
What information should I look for tag?
Does color matter?
What does acidity imply?

3. Cap + Wine glass
After taking a walk and taking the tasting course, take a break and enjoy a cap of Manchego cured sheep cheese made by family and own livestock, accompanied by bread with tomato and oil.

The lid is served accompanied by a glass of wine made from grapes of our property.
