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.
