Provence has one of the smallest productions of olive oil if compared to other Mediterranean countries. And yet, a quite peculiar one.  During the tour, we will visit an olive oil producer and his orchards.  You will learn about all aspects of the production: how the geography, climate, agricultural, harvesting and milling methods influence the quality of olive oil.  You will also learn how tasting techniques and how t to identify an original DOP product from the many imitations present on the market. Last but not least we will talk about the origins of the product, from ancient times to today.
