What you'll do

1. I will welcome you at the entrance of the olive grove of Son Moragues in Valldemossa. Our “Possession”, an ancestral Mallorcan farmstead is the doorway to the spectacular Unesco Heritage of the Tramuntana.
2. We will climb the gentle terraces of the olive grove to reach a viewpoint favoured by the Archduke of Austria, one-time owner of Son Moragues. From there, you will discover the many facets of olive growing in the Tramuntana. We will discover the human, social, historical and sometimes even spiritual aspects of growing olives and producing olive oil in the Mediterranean.
3. You will discover an olive grove where past and present have joined for the greater benefit of all, the land, the trees, animals and humans. Inspired and guided by ancient agricultural wisdom yet grateful to modern technology, we have restored Son Moragues to its former glory and we wish to share our success with you.
4. On our slow descent back to the village, we will talk about the processes involved in the making of our prize-winning organic olive oil.
5. We will end our Tour with a guided and informative olive oil tasting under a centenary olive tree. You will also try our homemade organic jams with rustic Mallorca bread and local cheese.
Other things to note:
I recommend you wear appropriate footwear and sun protection when necessary.

My name is Barbara. I am a trained Sommelier, and I have worked in the majorcan culinary world for 15 years. After working in a winery in Binissalem leading tours and wine tastings , I have set up my own company organising events. I have worked alongside many very talented and like minded professionals whose desire was to present Mallorca's culinary treasures to the world.
I was born in Italy and grew up in Greece and I have learned the universal language of food from a very young age. Terroirs of the Mediterranean have always fascinated me and I have found in Mallorca the perfect distillation of History, Nature and Food.
For the past two years I have had a wonderful experience offering olive Oil Tours in the Son Moragues Estate in Valldemossa here in Mallorca and I am very happy to share this Treasure with you.

Where you'll be

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to discover the olive grove of the Son Moragues Estate in Valldemossa. Founded at the end of the 13th century, Son Moragues is a beacon of agricultural revival in the Tramuntana mountain of Mallorca, as since 2006, immense efforts have been put into reviving the abandoned olive grove.

My husband and I both found this tour amazing, informative, scenic, but most of all Barbara's passion overflowed as she spoke of this historic olive grove. We were fortunate to be in a very good group of guests as well, we all participated and we're respectful. We highly recommend this tour!

Excellent way to get a sense of Mallorca’s history which is interwoven with the olive oil. Those same trees producing olive oil today stood in the time of the Iliad!

This was an absolutely amazing experience! Barbara was so obvisouly exited about the olive farm and it’s history and she made us fall in love too. It was so interesting to learn about Mallorca and the Tramuntana mountains through the history of olive growing. We loved their organic approach and how they very clearly have a deep respect for the nature. And just to top it we had the most delicious tasting of homemade jams, limonade - and of course olive oil, sitting pirourescly under a giant olive tree.
