The Olive Oil Experience is a culinary activity where olive oil plays the starring role. It consists of a visit to the olive groves and the olive mill, a video screening and product tasting.
Oli de Ventalló, in L'Alt Empordà, offers an Olive Oil Experience, a guided tour of the different phases in the production of the oil.
It starts in the courtyard of the olive mill and moves on to the olive grove, where olive growing is briefly explained. A video is shown in the mill on how olives are harvested, after which the visit moves into the building, while the olive oil production process is explained. There is a tasting of two extra virgin oils and, finally, visitors can choose either a tasting menu of kilometre-zero products or dinner in the La Bassa restaurant.
If you'd like the guided tour in a language other than those normally offered, please contact the company. The price varies with the chosen option, as the activity can last one or four hours.
