Tasting
Extra Virgin Tour
Participate in the Extra Virgin Tour and discover the secrets of Evo oil: book your spot at the FICO Oil Mill!

Seven weekends centered on extra virgin olive oil from October 26th to April 19th.  Seven events to taste quality Italian oils, appreciate their characteristics, learn to identify their defects and correctly decipher the text on the label, in a journey that will involve all five senses.

The initiative is part of "Oil on the Table, extra virgin masterpieces," an information and communication campaign promoted by the Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies and managed by ISMEA.

Together with our taster, among other things you'll discover that in Italy we have over 600 cultivars of olives and that the color of the oil is not indicative of quality.

 

                                                                                                                              PRENOTA

 

Don't miss the chance to get to know a precious food like extra virgin olive oil. During the tastings you will learn many things about the entire production chain, and you will immerse yourself in the colors and flavors of quality evo oil. At the end you'll understand how to read the label and interpret the acronyms, but also how to distinguish quality oil among the many offered by the market.

                                                                                                                                 SCOPRI
