For a taste-bud-tickling exercise that doesn't involve grapes, head to Olivo, Helen and John Meehan's olive grove, 3 km (2 mi) north of Martinborough. You can tour the grove and its 5 acres of gardens to learn how their oils are produced. Tastings (and sales) of their extra-virgin and infused olive oils are encouraged. They're open weekends and otherwise by appointment.
