Olive Oil and Food Sampling at Saratoga Olive Oil Company

Slow Food Olive Oil and Food Sampling at Saratoga Olive Oil Company

Extra virgin olive oil has been part of life’s necessities since the beginning of time. The oldest olive trees alive are 4,000 years old and provided medicine, beauty aids and were important elements of religious rituals. This remarkable tree’s fruit provides us life-giving antioxidants and vitamins to help us live healthier, longer lives. Each extra virgin is unique; the oil’s aromatic properties are a reflection of terroir, varietal, and processing. These unique characteristics in each oil can be showcased by the food we pair them with and enjoyed with every course of the meal. Come learn about the health benefits of olive oil and learn how to incorporate them into our every day lives.
