Theoretical classes not only offer a knowledge base regarding tasting but also serve 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, there will be a visit to an olive oil mill where you will see first-hand how olive oil is made.
