About The Event
First is a visit to the lovely Olive Oil Estate Masía El Altet in Alcoi (1-1/2 hr drive from Valencia), which is known for their quality olive oils. We will tour the olive grove and taste their high-end Extra Virgin Olive Oils. This is a great opportunity to get the oils direct from the producer. This producer does not accept credit cards, cash only.
Next, we will go to the small town of Millena (30 min. drive) to tour the olive grove, the mill and see an "olivo milenario" (1,000 year olive tree)(1.5 hours for tour). The mill does accept credit cards. After the tour we will have lunch at a local restaurant that includes salad, primer plato, segundo plato, wine or water, dessert and coffee. Vegetarian menu will be available. We will be walking through the olive groves and there will be some uneven ground, so wear comfortable walking shoes. Wheelchairs cannot be used in the groves.
