Guided tour of an olive oil orchard with wine tasting near Cordoba
Did you know that Spain is the largest producer of olive oil in the world? And 80% of Spanish production can be found in Andalusia. The history of olive oil in Spain spans 6,000 years. Back then, it was prepared by the Phoenician and Greek settlers of the Iberian Peninsula. The importance of olive oil to Spanish culture cannot be overstated. The locals actually refer to it as "liquid gold!" Spain is also home to an abundance of grape varieties. Vast amounts of land make Spain the third largest wine producers in the world.
During this tour, you will experience a combination of two of the most valued items in the Spanish culinary world: wine and olive oil. This tour will take you to visit the expansive olive groves of the Cordoba countryside. There, you will learn about all the different characteristics, culinary uses and health benefits of olive oil. Try different varieties of olives and learn how to identify their key characteristics. Experience a fun and delicious tasting session in a beautiful bodega with an array of Cordoba's representative olive oil, along with Spanish wine and some delicious snacks that pair perfectly with both. Before heading back home we may also stop at a small ceramics factory to learn about the rich pottery traditions of Southern Spain.
