Oakhurst Olive Estate
And now for something completely different, Olive Oil Tasting.
Yip, you read that part right, for us, this was a mind-blowing experience. Never have we even contemplated that olive oil had so many tastes, smells and complexities yet there we where sipping Olive Oil out of shot glasses and loving every second of the experience.
The tasting area at Oakhurst is very stylish with great views out over the surrounding valley and mountains.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about pretty much everything Oakhurst and olive-related, you literally could see the passion for her job and love of olives running through her veins - brilliant absolutely brilliant.
So with the tasting finished we simply had to buy; we walked out with 5 litres of "Oakhurst Delicate Extra Virgin Olive Oil", a small bottle of "Oakhurst Intense Extra Virgin Olive Oil" and wait for it, three kgs of "Oakhurst Kalamata Olives".
When we say the Olive Oil is good here at Oakhurst, we mean it. Their awards include the 2014 New York International Olive Oil Competition "Best in Class" win.
