Cross the border into Spain, discover the traditional methods of fine cork and cattle farming, and savour the flavours of local tapas.

Don’t forget your passport for this rustic Spanish experience, because you’re heading. Pause during your scenic drive into beautiful Andalusia and admire dramatic views of the Rock of Gibraltar.

Visit a typical 18th century Andalusian farmhouse in an idyllic cork forest. Discover how the high-quality cork is harvested from the grand old oak trees before it’s sold to winemakers around the globe. Take a look at the deep-red native breed of cattle, Retinto – one of Spain’s purest breeds – and sample some tasty tapas with a glass of beer or provincial sherry.

Fancy taking home a memento of this countryside experience? Browse the farm shop for local leather and cork goods, top-quality olive oils and sherry, and handcrafted souvenirs.
