Event

Baronia de Cabacés Olive Oil Fair

During the fair many events take place such as tours to the olive mill, olive oil-tasting courses, guided tours to the local heritage and an outdoor popular lunch.

In the Priorat, cultivated olive trees cover an area of approximately 3.500 hectares. Today, traditional methods of cultivation predominate, although there is a clear tendency towards more organic procedures or systems. This is possibly due to the fact that most of the olive trees are grown in up in the mountains. .

The resulting oil is well balanced in term of sweetness, spiciness and bitterness and, together with the pronounced fruity aromas of the oils, echo the characteristic qualities of the olives from which they have been made. In short, these are oils that can take their place at table alongside the best wines as distinctive ingredients of Priorat cuisine.
