Introductory tasting of Spanish Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

On June 12 the Chamber organized, in collaboration with Alma Cervera, an “Introductory tasting of Spanish Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)”. Alma Cervera has recently launched her business focusing on the tasting and distribution of Spanish EVOOs, selecting products with the best varieties.

EVOOs from different Spanish regions were tasted, learning about the different tasting techniques and the principles of oil making.

Alma Envero was one of the tasted oils, 100% virgin extra, cultivated, picked and processed through traditional techniques and environmentally friendly. The crop is located in the north east of Murcia, with centenary olive trees and from the varieties of Picual and Arbequina.

The oil SUCUM, from the company Dehesa Frías S.L., was also tasted. From this “finca” located in the north of Seville, the oil is extracted from the first crop from olives of the variety Picuda from Baena.

The oils were tasted with innovative pairings, such as preparation of potato and cod, melon and cucumber cream and different charcuterie such as jamon serrano, manchego cheese and cecina.

Spanish analytical wine tasting

On the 1st on March the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Belgium and Luxembourg  organized a Spanish wine tasting seminar. The event was presented in English by Alfonso Escubós, diplom. oenologist and educator of the Academy of Wine of Spain.

In an analytical wine tasting one glass of each wine was provided for every single participant to be tasted, from the very beginning; thus, six wines would mean a set of six glasses. When the presentation of each wine has been completed, the taster could analyze and compare all of them.

In a conventional sequential wine tasting, this possibility of comparative analysis, is limited and can also be compromised when the glasses are not the most suitable and/or even reused for the next wine sample to come. The seminar was not only fast tasting / work the 6 wines, it involves everything, from the glass to the cork including the bottle, the varieties, DO, etc.
