Level 2 of the Olive Oil Sommelier Certification Course will look closely at olive oil production processes and how they affect specific sensory characteristics. In this 2-day course, we’ll dive deeper into olive oil chemistry, testing methods, quality standards and supply chain considerations, while exploring the world of olive cultivars. With an emphasis on advanced sensory assessment techniques, you’ll sample oils from 20+ countries through interactive tasting sessions to develop sensory memory and examine olive oil defects & quality characteristics.
