Olive Oil Co. Taste Challenge | Free

August 16
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Moreover, you will have the opportunity to taste tomato bocconcini in 3 styles – Tuscan Herb Olive Oil and Traditional Balsamic, Garlic Olive Oil and Fig Balsamic and Basil Olive Oil and Strawberry balsamic.

Did you know that 69% of imported olive oils labeled as “extra virgin” failed the IOC sensory standard, according to a UC Davis Study reported in 2010. In other words, most imported extra virgin olive oils were not extra virgin at all! Yikes! Time to put your taste buds to the test!
