Got olive trees? Join McEvoy Ranch’s General Manager Samantha Dorsey and Extra Virgin Alliance’s Alexandra Devarenne for a full-day olive oil workshop on May 19th, 2017. This course will cover season-by-season cultural practices for growers to cultivate healthy olive trees that consistently produce high-quality oil. This workshop targets small and mid-size growers with 1 – 100 acres for medium density olive orchards for table olives or oil production.
In addition, the team at McEvoy will present an introduction to tasting olive oil for producers by examining the positive and negative flavor characteristics in the context of grove management and milling decisions.
After a farm-fresh lunch with McEvoy Ranch’s estate-grown wine (and olive oil!), spend the afternoon in the orchards reviewing the morning’s content as it is applied in the field. Participants will be outside moving about on uneven surfaces. Layers and comfortable shoes are recommended. Bring your questions and engage in the discussion.
The day will conclude at McEvoy Ranch’s tasting room and patio. Join the team for a complimentary glass of wine and special treat in the tasting room at the conclusion of the workshop, also leaving time to enjoy a spot of retail shopping.
This workshop tends to sell out quickly so get your tickets asap.
