Oleotourism, olive oil tour
The art of making extra virgin olive oil
First of all, the oleotour that we offer it is a new experience in a very typical hacienda (called ‘Cortijo’ in Andalusia region) at Los Alcores countryside. This area has been known to produce olive oil since the Roman times (two centuries ago), and still today there are families producing it. This hacienda has been producing extra virgin olive oil from more than two centuries. Nowadays, they also have a museum about the traditional art of making olive oil, with renewed machinery and the most modern techniques to produce first quality extra virgin olive oil.
After the introduction of the owner, the guided tour will drive you to the olive trees rows beside the propriety. The owner will give you all explanations and information about the care of the olive trees, maturation process, manual harvesting, selection process of the olives, and art of making extra virgin olive oil in a traditional way.
Moreover by the end of the tour, you will visit the pressing area and quality control department to know the secrets about this old product, and you will taste different varieties of extra virgin olive oil and finally…a surprise!
