Puente Genil is also famous for the area’s famous prize winning D.O. Montilla-Moriles wines; its excellent olive oil and varied, widely recognised preserves.

This olive grove is close to the town. It offers various activities such as a tour of the mill and farmland, breakfasts, tasting sessions, olive harvesting workshops or horse and cart rides through the olive grove. Every part of the Aceite de las Valdesas olive oil process is carried out on its premises: the olives are grown in the groves and then ground in the mill located on the premises. The company is therefore able to have control over the whole manufacturing process: from growing the olives until they are packaged.
