International Masterclasses for olive oil tasters

4 days journey in the world of sensory analysis of olive oil.. Train your active skills with a full immersion among the best samples of the Leone d’Oro International.

The masterclasses focus in particular on Italian and foreign mono-varietal oils and defects codified IOC and take place in a beautiful location on the Western shore of Lake Garda

Like the Leone d’Oro International, the Masterclasses are different: the approach to tasting provides not only the recognition of descriptors as per the COI Method, but also a strong focus on intensity, harmony, and balance between the same.

Lunches are included in the course and served in the farmhouse that flanks the course venue. Enjoy typical Italian cuisine and exercise your ability to combine oil/ food with the best oils of the day.

To guide you through this sensory experience is the panel leader Maria Paola Gabusi, for more than 10 years engaged in discovering and enhancing the best oils in the world. Every day you will taste at least 16 different samples.
