Hola! I’m Mar. I was born and bred in Andalucia in southern Spain, surrounded by olive trees. My passion and fascination for this tree and its fruits has also led me to attend many courses with some of the best experts in the industry such that I am now a qualified expert in extra virgin olive oil tasting.
After gaining my expertise in extra virgin olive oil tasting at Jaen University in Spain, I have now founded the "Spanish Olive Oil School". It is an educational space with the aim of sharing my knowledge about, and benefits of, this product. I have also assessed and judged the quality of extra virgin olive oils at a number of European competitions including the Armonia competition in Milan and the Great Taste and The London Olive Oil competitions in the UK.
