Whether pungent, bitter, fruity or otherwise – a diversity of local olive oils took center stage last week when judges decided on the winners of the 2010 Paso Robles Olive Festival’s Olive Oil Tasting Contest.
Those top producers will be announced at the 2010 Paso Robles Olive Festival slated for Saturday, Aug. 21. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Downtown City Park.
But before the park transforms into a mecca of all-things olive fanfare – featuring free olive oil and olive product sampling, statewide producers and free olive oil ice cream – a slate of seven judges gathered at Olea Farm in Templeton to sample and judge each olive oil as well as to decide whose olive creations are most tantalizing.
