Additional information:

The visit to Almazara Valle del Iregua oil mill starts with a short introduction to the history of the olive tree, since its introduction in the peninsula to the more current and modern planting techniques. Then reference is made to the DOP “Aceite de la Rioja” which guarantees each and every one of our products.

Then we go the projection room, where there is a presentation of the mill, and all the extraction process is explained step by step, as well as the best methods for conservation of the best Extra Virgin olive oil.

Once the visitor has understood the Extra Virgin olive oil extraction process, we make the guided tour of our facilities, visiting every room: the reception courtyard, oil extraction room, cellar and packaging room.

Once the guided visit has finished, there will be a guided tasting session at the mill, where we analyze both the most common oils that we can find at any establishment as well as the best Ecological Extra Virgin olive oils cold pressed.

While the oils are tasted, different perceptions and sensations experienced when performing the event are discussed.

Once the different olive oils have been tasted, we go to another room where a delicious meal is awaiting us, using the best Almazara Iregua Valley wine and local produce. The meal naturally consists of olive oil dipping, as well as 4 or 6 tapas, all garnished with Extra Virgin olive oil.

During the meal you will have a pleasant conversation where our Master oil maker will explain the main benefits of the consumption of Extra Virgin olive oil, as well as the benefits for our health. In this visit we will also learn the clear differences between olive oil and seed oils.

All our tours are enlivened by one of our experts, generally the Master oil maker, since we want our visitors to clear up all the doubts they may have.
