Savantes Olive Oil Tasting Programme – Melbourne

November 21, 2019 @ 8:00 AM - November 22, 2019 @ 5:00 PM

International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Savantes, the Australian-based olive oil movement, will hold a programme in Melbourne on 21 and 22 November.

Bringing some of the world’s most acclaimed extra virgin olive oils for tasting, the two-day programme assists participants in developing their flavour appreciation and knowledge. The sessions are designed to bring commercial benefits to all segments of the industry through better product knowledge and understanding of the local and global market. 

The event will be conveniently held at the Melbourne Airport Holiday Inn Hotel giving easy access to international and interstate travellers.

International Savantes holds up to 10 events, with as many as 200 participants, worldwide every year, in Europe, the United States and Australia. Events include the National and World Team Tasting Championships, Conferences and Flavour Evaluation Courses.

Included in the two-day programme will be the Savantes Skills Review which tests the skill and knowledge of tasters. Those who attain prescribed scores will be certified as Associate Savantes or Savantes. Frequent tasters will also be recognised for regular achievement by the award of Silver, Gold and Platinum Certificates. Currently there are 5 Savantes and over 85 Associates worldwide.

Savantes programmes have been presented regularly in USA, Spain, Italy, France, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Ireland, Greece, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.
