What is an Olive Oil Sommelier?
A Professional Olive Oil Sommelier has a thorough knowledge of the full production process of olive oil – “from the grove to the bottle” – and is highly skilled in the selection, classification, promotion and rational use of olive oil.
Our goal is to offer a well balanced theory and practical course that will provide students with the right skills and knowledge to be able to communicate the rational use of olive oil in the kitchen and on the plate, in particular, the harmonization of EVOO & Food.
Upon successful completion of the course, participants will have acquired skills and certification, entitling them to join the International Register of Olive Oil Experts and to be part of professional olive oil evaluation panels.
