The figs are not harvested commercially but are available to all guest between late August and late September. The almonds, harvested from some 3000 trees are collected on a commercial basis and sold to the local cooperative between September and November. The grapes, of which there are six varieties (Syrah, Tempranillo, Merlot, Macabeo, Pedro Ximenez and Verdejo varieties) are picked at the end of September. Firstly the red, which has to mature in vats for a week before being pressed and thereafter the whites. Both are collected in the morning by a team of 6 to 8 people from the local village. The olives are harvested at the end of November and milled in one batch in the local organic mill. La Jarilla wine and olive oil is on sale to the guests, who may participate in any of the harvests, should they so wish.
