What to expect
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.

Amazing experience for anyone who loves olive oil and local food
Mar 2019
This is a must for anyone who loves olive oil and local food and is visiting the Madrid-Toledo area. Guillermo met us in town and led us to the olive grove with trees over 300 years old! He told us about his family's olive growing history, how he naturally takes care of the trees and the land, and why they produce such wonderful olives and olive oil. He patiently answered all of our questions, too. Because it was so windy we didn't do our tasting in the grove, but went back to their office in town. Laura first explained to us how they press their olive oil, and what you should look for when purchasing olive oil to make sure you're getting a quality product. The taste test was a lot of fun, as she guided us through what to look for in the smell and taste, and the differences were very noticeable. Then we had a wonderful lunch of olive oil, tapas from local food products and local wine. It was an amazing experience that I cannot recommend enough..

Unique experience outside Toledo!
Laura and her husband own this olive grove. Laura led a very interesting tour, teaching us about the history of their farm and the organic methods of growing and harvesting olives. This was followed by a fabulous olive oil tasting, where Laura taught us how to differentiate between types of olive oils. We finished off with wine, bread and cheese. This was a really unique experience and even my kids (12 & 15) enjoyed it. It is clear Laura and Guillermo are devoted to what they do and work incredibly hard.

The tour was amazing for our group of colleagues: exceeded all expectations!
Sep 2018
In September 2017 (two years ago) we visited with a group of colleagues the olive grove. We got a tour, an explanation, a tasting and the most amazing lunch between the olive trees in the olive grove. Laura and Guillermo are very friendly, authentic: just wonderful. They also suggested a tourbus company that fit right into our budget, so communication and service was great to. Now, after two (2) years, people still have very warm memories to this day. Thank you for the experience! We will never drink "lampante" again. P.s. the olive oil we ordered was delivered fine, in time and also very delicious.

Unexpected gem.
Jun 2019 • Family
I do not enjoy these things...
You tell me we are visiting an olive farm in the middle of nowhere in a massive heat wave... NO WAY!!
But, I got outvoted, and I am so glad I did...
It was truly a fantastic time.
Go there, taste the oil, see the sights, meet the wonderful people that run it...
One of the best memories me and my family will have of our visit to Spain.

Olive Oil Farm Tour & Tasting
Jun 2019 • Friends
A beautiful young couple are the proud farmers in this hundred(s) of years old olive oil grove. You will tour the grove and hear all about cultivating and harvesting olives. It was very hot and dry when we went, but we were given water and straw hats. The information was so interesting (and for us, in English!) that the hour passed quickly. The tapas lunch was delicious (vegetarian option is offered) and the tasting was an awesome opportunity to actually see and taste the difference in oils. This took place in a large, cool refurbished hen house. Atmosphere was bright, clean, and inviting (clean, nice bathrooms too!), the tour itself was very informative and engaging, and Laura & Guillermo were so gracious and welcoming. A distinctly Spanish experience for sure!

Olive farm tour
Jun 2019 • Family
We had a lovely and informative tour of this family olive grove followed by an excellent tasting with tapas and wine. We learned all about how the olive trees are grown in an organic and environmentally respectful manner with the processing of olives to make olive oil. The tasting of different oils was really interesting. My 9 and 11 yo sons also enjoyed it.
