McEvoy Ranch’s Growing and Appreciating Olive Oil Workshop
McEvoy Ranch’s General Manager Samantha Dorsey and Extra Virgin Alliance’s Alexandra Devarenne will be hosting a full-day olive oil workshop targeted towards small and mid-size growers with 1-100 acres for medium density olive orchards for table olives or oil production.
This workshop will cover season by season cultural practices for growers to cultivate healthy olive trees that will consistently produce high-quality oil. In addition, they will present an introduction to tasting olive oil for producers that will examine the positive and negative flavor characteristics in the context of grove management and milling decisions.
After a farm-fresh lunch featuring McEvoy Ranch’s estate-grown wine and olive oil, attendees will spend the afternoon in the orchards reviewing the morning’s content as it is applied in the field. The workshop will conclude at McEvoy Ranch’s beautiful Tasting Room, where attendees will enjoy a flight of wine.
