Owner description: The land where Quaryat olive oil begin their journey is a bare 15 min from Granada city and it is a place of significant environmental value. It is in the Sierra Nevada Natural Park, a high altitude environment of well-preserved nature. Surprise family and Friends by taking them on a special visit to see first-hand how premium&awarded oil is made the traditional way. Learn to tell apart the different varieties and qualities and simply admire one of Granada's most captivating beauty spots. We recommend our Mill man breakfast tour. During this visit, there is a guided tour of the groves and olive oil mill facilities before going into an educational introduction to olive oil tasting. Finally, relax and treat yourself to local organic bread and delicious olive oil to practice your newly learnt tasting skills.

What a wonderful morning 33 of us spent at Quaryat Dillar today!!! We were very warmly welcomed by Antonio on our arrival and introduced to our fantastic guide, Jose, who speaks excellent English. We walked a very short distance to the olive grove where we learned all about the growing and care of the Olive trees. We were then taken to see all the machinery involved in the making of Olive Oil, learning about all the various stages of production and we also saw the huge storage vats. We then followed Jose in the bus to a nearby, beautiful little hotel with fabulous views to the snow capped Sierra Nevadas, where we were taught how to taste the different types of Olive Oil. We sampled 5 different varieties of oil accompanied by bread from the local bakery. The tables were beautifully set up with napkins personalised for our tour. Afterwards we were able to order bottles of our choice and our orders were swiftly delivered, straight from the factory. These bottles were very reasonably priced! The whole tour was so professional and I can highly recommend a visit to Quaryat Dillar. I have never tasted such wonderful Virgen Extra Olive Oil!

Arrived without making any previous booking which isn’t the normal way to visit this place. Nether the less, the manager gave us a warm welcome and squeezed in a small guided tour for us anyway. Very interesting. We got to see the olive gardens, the mill and try some different sorts of oil. All in all a very good experience that might have been better if we had pre-announced our visit at least 24h before. Small shop at the place.

I came with a group of 20 other college students, and our guides were hugely knowledgeable not only about their own production processes, but contextualized the industry norms and quality levels to help us understand the importance of aceite to Spain and the world, as well as how it ought to be best appreciated. Then, they led us through a tasting of two of the freshest, most unique olive oils I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing. I'll definitely be going back when family comes to visit, and will buy plenty of bottles to hand out as gifts!

(español abajo) Would definitely recommend a visit to Quaryat Dillar! The olive oil tasting was incredible and our hosts taught us an incredible amount about olive oil tasting, apprecation and what to look for in your olive oil taste and smell. The passion that Quaryat Dillar puts into their olive oil production is clearly evident and we learned so much touring around the orchard, factory and tasting the oil at the end accompanied by delicious, fresh local bread! Definitely try to make it out to Quaryat Dillar if you can.
Recomiendo una visita a Quaryat Dillar! Su aceite de oliva fue increíble y nuestros anfitriones nos enseñaron mucho sobre cómo catar y apreciar el olor y el sabor del aceite. La pasión que los de Quaryat Dillar tienen para la producción del aceite de oliva está evidente en la calidad de su producto y aprendimos muchísimo durante la visita guiada de los olivos, la fábrica y la cata que fue acompañada por un pan delicioso, fresco y regional. Deberían intentar de ir a Quaryat Dillar si tengan la oportunidad.

This was an amazing experience! It was a chance to learn things I never knew about olives, olive oil, regional history, the oil production process, and the modern olive oil market. Tour included the orchard, production facility, and tasting session in two beautiful locations. We were made to feel at home to ask any questions we had, and there were always intriguing answers.
