How will the course look like?

The course consists of in-house sessions driven by different experts accredited by ESAO. These combine theoretical classes with carefully structured tasting sessions in terms of adequate length and number of tastings. 

Theoretical classes not only offer a base of knowledge but also are useful to give the senses a necessary break, thus avoiding over-saturation. This has proven to be very effective as a way to learn and assimilate the necessary concepts.

In addition, carefully selected professional visits will be held, including authentic olive oil mills as well as olive groves during harvest period, among others.

All this together will give you a real and deep learning.
