Gourmet Olive Oil Tasting in Katzrin – with Villa Rimona Zimmers

You may have been to  a “wine tasting” or even a “scotch tasting,” but recently we tried an “olive oil tasting” in Katzrin on the Golan Heights. It’s a great stop after a morning or afternoon of nature trails, waterfalls, biking or jeeping.

The Golan Olive Oil Mill and Visitor Center offers a guided tour which explains the process of olive oil production. reviewing the evolution of the process from ancient tools to our modern machines. The tour includes a short film. Complete your visit with a gourmet tasting of different flavours of extra virgin olive oil.

During the olive-harvest season (which begins in October), visitors can watch as olive oil is produced. The entire process, from crushing to bottling, is open to the public.

We had a great time there… here’s a fun 2 minute video including us “tasting” the oil and “scrubbing” with olive soap.
