We stopped here on the off chance having followed signs after visiting the oldest olive trees.

We was lucky enough to join a tour and taste some of the oil at the end, was fab!

We visited on a morning just when they opened and didn't do the tour but did have the opportunity for a personal explanation of the products as well as tastings. We loved the products and plan on doing the tour next time we visit. It is worth going with or without the tour. The love for their product is evident and it made the experience much more enjoyable.

My family took the olive production tour and tasting and had a great time. The guides are top notch and knowledgible about their products. They have an amazingly good olive oil as well. Well worth the visit.
