Dear Members,

We are delighted to let you know that we have organised a fun car run on Saturday 16th January 2021 to visit an Olive Oil processing finca in Zahara de la Sierra.www.oleumviride.com.
We are sure you will all be very happy to get away to the countryside after lockdown and have a little fun with the wonderful mountain scenery.

We will take our own cars as travelling in a coach with the new restrictions could be prohibitive. We have organised a very beautiful driving route, which will take us just beyond Ronda and then dropping down to the lakes of Zahara de la Sierra, El Gastor.  This is subject to the restrictions at the time.

There will be a tour of the finca which will include the process of producing olive oil, from tree to bottle. There will also be a video of the harvest.    We will then have a tasting of the different olive oils and learn about the qualities and organoleptic characteristics. Finishing with a glass of locally produced wine.  We have organized a lunch on the way back in one of the beautiful white villages.  If some members do not wish to join the lunch, there are many places to stop, including Ronda. 
Details and prices of the lunch to be confirmed.

As numbers are limited due to the current restrictions, bookings will be reserved on a first come, first served basis.  

Warmest regards
