Provence

Château de Montfrin

Viticole et Oléicole des Rives du Rhône
Château de Montfrin
Montfrin, 30490, France
TEL: 33 4 66 22 94 47

The Château produces some of the region's finest olive oils—fruity, rich blends with remarkably low acidity. After a brief tour of the property, guests take seats in an upstairs salon for a tasting led by Jean-René and a local olive oil educator named Françoise Pouget. Sample a variety of oils from tiny plastic cups, the flavors ranging from green and spicy, with an aroma of freshly mowed grass, to fruity and ripe, with chocolate and truffle top notes. Between tastes, participants clear their palates with bites of tart green apple from local orchards.
