We didn't do the tour, we just went into the tasting room. We tasted various olive oils, basalmic vinegars, and olives. Everything was just delicious! The staff is super friendly. Really enjoyable outing.

I am planning a trip for my parents and my family and was wondering if small children were allowed. My son is two and the rest would be adults.

There were quite a few children in the tour that was going on when we were there and the owner's grandson was actually helping out in the store!
