The olive oil tasting did not sound "my cup of tea", but I really enjoyed sampling the minute amounts they pour into the little glasses. We tasted a peppery new olive oil, a sublime lemon olive oil and the balsamic vinegar that they import from Modena. The vinegar and oils are accompanied by bowls of black and green olives and of the black and green olive pastes, along with crackers and bread. We certainly went away with olive oils, the vinegar and the olive pastes.
The hostesses are informative and helpful, but are not intrusive and one is left to enjoy the wines in peace.
The wine tasting was interesting. The old adage "you get what you pay for" rings very true here, and the more expensive wines certainly were much more delicious and velvety than the Nu range with its single cultivars - both of which were rather rough. It is so refreshing tasting wines from grapes that we don't see so often is South Africa, such as the Sangiovese and the Nebbiolo.
This attraction is well worth visiting as you come away having learnt something new as well as having really enjoyed the experience.
