Pasolivo

I hopped off the wine Trolley to join others at Pasolivo for the olive oil tasting and tour, and was so glad I did. Brad happily went on to Tablas Creek winery without me, where we joined up a little later.

First we had a brief tour of the processing process, which was brief and informative

Next we entered the tasting room. Though I was full from lunch, that bread dipped in tangerine oil and honey was wonderful! So was the lime oil, and the December '07 green, peppery, "Olio Nuovo".

I was happy with my purchases!

Tomorrow ...my first tangerine oil creation!

We stop here on every visit to Paso to stock up. The lime is my absolute favorite, but you can't go wrong with any of the choices!

Did you try bread dipped in oil then into the 'dukkah' nut and spice mix? Oh. My. God. Killer! I had to buy a tin, and now am scheming on a recipe to make my own. :D
