Savantes Varietals and Renaissance Conference

Extra Virgin Olive Oil Savantes is always looking for new and progressive activities to benefit those who have participated in Savantes programmes, and to attract more participants.

An example of the innovative events generated through this philosophy are the Team Tasting Championships which have been held in an increasing number of countries. The Inaugural World Extra Virgin Olive Oil Team Tasting Championship will be held in Priego de Cordoba, Spain on 4th and 5th October 2019.

Now two new events have been initiated. Both in response to regular requests from the Savantes network.

Savante Varietals is a day of tasting Varietals form around the world, the classics and the new. Those taking the Savantes Review Test have consistently commented that they find it difficult to get access to varietals. Well, here is the opportunity!

The Savantes Conference is the response to the need for those who don’t get the opportunity to present papers or opinion at the established conferences. There may be many reasons for this, perhaps because they are relatively new to the industry, do not have access to the traditional networks or are working in a field that is not often represented at conferences. The Savantes Conference will provide the opportunity for these industry professionals to share their ideas and/or opinions.

Both these events, which are open to anyone, will provide a great opportunity to increase knowledge and expand networks across regions and professional occupations.
