After this it's back on the van, reaching a fascinating ancient olive oil mill in a noble estate, and given a guided tour of their spaces in a unique mix of ancient and modern setting, learning about the processes involved in producing olive oil. A taste of their gourmet olive oil will reveal all the incredible flavors that their passion and work generate.
