Visit an Olive Grove in Toledo countryside and experience an olive oil tasting with Madway! Close to Madrid. Transport included.
Two passionate biologists (Guillermo & Laura) left Madrid a few years ago to literally return to their roots and revive the ancient olive grove of Guillermo’s great-great grandfather. They tell you everything you want to know about the origin of the olive (tree) in Spain and the traditional (and ecological) way of producing olive oil.
This unique experience begins with a stroll through centuries-old olive grove, where we’ll show you what olive trees look like, explain how they came to the Iberian peninsula, and describe their important role throughout history.
You’ll have the chance not only to visit an organic olive grove but also to learn about the work we do throughout the year to produce high-quality extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), with a particular focus on our chosen variety: Cornicabra.
In the shade of an olive tree we enjoy a tasting where we analyze the olive oil with the five senses. You’ll have the opportunity to taste various samples, and we’ll answer questions such as: Why are some oils spicier or more bitter than others? What information should I look for on the label? Does the color matters? What does the acidity means?
After the stroll and tasting course, you we will take a break and enjoy a tapa of mature Manchego cheese. The cheese is produced at a family farm from their own sheep’s milk and is served with bread, olive oil and tomato. The tapa is accompanied by a glass of wine from a local winery.
Optionally you can enjoy a fantastic lunch at the countryside with a tasting menu including local farmhouse products from the Toledo region, such as partridge pâté, tapenade, pumpkin morcilla (black pudding) and a special dessert paired with our olive oil. The food is served with a wine from the local region.
