WHAT WE DO
The tour starts in Valencia in my 9 seater air-conditioned minibus. The meet-up place is at La Ola Fresca, Carrer Musicò Magenti 11c, Benimaclet, Valencia. (This is at the foot of Carrer de Mistral 25a) We drive up to the area of Castellòn where there is the highest concentration of olive trees that are over 1,000 years old in the world.
We visit the olive groves and see some of the most extraordinarily beautiful old trees, some more than 1,500 years old.
We then go on to visit a mill which was built in 1606 where I explain how oil was made in the old days. A fascinating and beautifully presented museum.
In complete contrast I then show you a modern mill which produces one of Spain’s greatest oils. Here I explain how great oil is made.
We then go to an olive grove owned by the mill owner where we have an olive oil tasting and this leads naturally into a picnic with wine (or a restaurant if it is raining) where we pair the different oils that we have tasted with delicious foods that demonstrate how magically great olive oils can transform food just as wines can when correctly paired with food.
The Johnny Madge Olive Oil Tour is normally for small groups of up to 8 people but we cater for larger groups too. There are various different discounts for groups of over 4.
