Wonderful Learning and Tasting Experience

We were fortunate to have the owner do the tasting for us. He explained the differences between the olives used in the oils that we tasted, the process behind making them, and also answered all the questions that we had. The tastings themselves were done on the professional tasting cups and he guided us through the entire process. We especially liked the picual and arbequina and will be trying to find them at our local specialty grocery stores (hopefully they have some!). He ended up whipping for us a much better Nutella to try (olive oil + cocoa powder), which we thought was pretty neat. Was definitely a fun experience!
Great way to learn more about the production and varieties in an evening

Lovely enthusiastic owners who obviously know this business. Enjoyed learning the process and tasting the different flavours.
Olive oil experience for the whole family

An excellent explanation of the olive oil process and an opportunity to taste a variety of different oils. The whole experience was expertly curated by MariCarmen and her knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject was very impressive. We all thoroughly enjoyed it while learning a lot too!
Even the Teenagers had a Great Time! Best Activity Ever!!!

Probably one of the best experiences we had on our 10 day trip! Even the teenagers in our group had fun. Maria was so personable and had so much passion and knowledge (her English was great too, for non-Spanish speakers) and made it so much fun. She wasn't overwhelmed at all by 8 loud Americans ages 16-50 . She also allowed us to sample other oils in her store, and was great at recommending specific oils for specific needs. If you are tired of looking at churches (me) and want to EXPERIENCE Spain, do this tasting experience! Warning: you may need an extra suitcase to take home your stash. I LITERALLY did. (Also, her shop partner, whose name I can't remember, is also delightful and I want her to be my best friend.)
Wonderful class

What a great experience.

We're already extra virgin olive oil lovers, but learned so much about different varieties, environments, and how to detect regular olive oil incorrectly labeled as extra virgin! The shop itself is very curated so after the class you can taste any other oil you see as well. We definitely wanted to bring home olive oil, so this class was helpful to identify our favorites.
