The  extra virgin olive oil professional taster

Who we are

We are a group of friends “in love” with our home land, Italy!
We are united since a long time by the same passion: olive oil, one of the riches of our Country, which is among the greatest olive oil producers in the world.
Out of passion and love for olive oil, some of us have become professional olive oil tasters, so as to enrich our knowledge and skill for this fascinating field also under the professional point of view.
Throughout a long period of time, which lasted several years, we toured the Country from North to South in search for the best quality of extra virgin olive oil we visited countless of small agricultural firms and their plantations situated in the most fascinating and beautiful corners of the Italian peninsula: Tuscany, Umbria, Sicily, etc...
And the Oliving project is born with the purpose of offering all this amount of knowledge and experience in selecting to any person who truly appreciates good extra virgin olive oil.

Types of olive oil
There is a certain amount of confusion existing almost everywhere when it comes to identify the various categories of olive oil: virgin, extra virgin, lamp, sansa, etc.
These categories should clearly indentify which type of olive oil one buys and consumes, yet, often, they create mere confusion if not, at times, deceive the consumer to the only advantage of dishonest producers which take advantage of this lack of preciseness and increase their profits through the practice of food fraud!...
