Olive Workshop At Babylonstoren

babylonstoren olive oilBring your hat and comfortable shoes because we are going to the orchards!

Our time in the olive orchards is followed by a walk through the garden as Linda Costa, doyenne of the olive industry in South Africa, explains how to grow, maintain and harvest olives. Then the man in charge of our olive production, Klaas Stoffberg, will take you on a tour of our olive oil production plant.

We then move on from olive trees to olive oil, discussing the production process, selection of olive oils for cooking, as well as a tasting of faulty oils and some of this season’s delicious fresh olive oils.

Interested in preserving your own olives? Linda will share her tried-and-tested methods with you.

Lunch will be served at the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price.

R600 per person
