A small group of olive oil lovers came together yesterday to refine their olive oil experience and tasting skills.
Framed by tall cypress trees and perfectly trimmed rose hedges, Ashanti Estate was the perfect setting for the Table Olive Workshop. Twenty-two attendees, representing large- to small-scale olive operations, came from as far as Oudtshoorn to hone their skills.
On a rainy day at the end of March, I made my way to Tulbagh to attend my first event as the newest member of the SA Olive team. The Tulbagh Valley is beautiful any day of the year, but with water-heavy clouds gently clinging to the mountain slopes, it’s magical.
