Have you ever thought about the process of making olive oil? In Jaén you will witness it first-hand.
The olive grove in Jaén
If there is any province in Spain characterized by the quality of the olive oil that is Jaén. Its landscapes are filled with a sea of olive trees. In addition, it is the province with the highest olive oil production rates worldwide. It is our local luxury that makes people more and more interested.
Oleoturismo has appeared accompanied by many factories and oil cooperatives that provide this service. The local olive groves open their door to tourists as does the region of La Loma. Úbeda, is one the cities with the highest number of olive trees growing in its surrounding villages, such as Baeza or Torreperogil. That is why we offer you the possibility to visit an ecological olive grove and an oil mill.
The ecological cultivation
We will start by taking a nice walk through our ecological olive grove where we will learn about the cultivation techniques, the different varieties of olive trees, the work that are carried out here and the reason behind the ecological agriculture. Then we will visit the oil mill to learn how to obtain the authentic olive juice. We will see the whole process from the moment the olives enter the oil mill until the oil is in the cellar.
Wake up your senses
Next, we will attend hedonistic tasting to taste and compare our oils. We will learn to appreciate the oil factory, gustatory, tactile and retronasal sensations that are experienced when tasting an Extra Virgin Olive Oil and we will enjoy a tapa paired with our oil.
Finally, we will visit the Cortijo del Espíritu Santo, a building built in the 16th century, where we will learn about its history and taste four dishes made with our organic oil and local products.
