The Olivery provided an extensive array of taste sensations even for people who are not into olives (like me). My wife loves olives. She enjoyed the visit immensely. It has something for all.

Generous in the tasting but there was no introduction or tour available. Pretty disappointing. As such we just left shortly. Only managed to see a few olives on the tree.

Thanks for your visit and feedback. Olives are harvested in May, hence the lack of them on the trees at the time of your visit. Regards Geoff

Although I am not an olive fan we still purchased a few nice sauces and things. Lots of different things to taste.
