DIY Tasting

While professional panels focus on detecting defects, the rest of us can focus on the fun part -appreciating the multitude of positive nuances in extra virgin olive oils!

Whether going solo or at a gathering, all you need are a few oils, a few tasting supplies and then follow the tips below:
