The Groves on 41 is a working farm with a combined 4000 Arbequina & Koroneiki trees.

We’ll talk about harvest and milling options and how we prepare for harvest.We’ll talk about the global industry and delve a bit into its tawdry past.
You will be provided with all materials needed for the class. We ask you not to drink coffee after 8 AM for the tasting session. No perfumes, as aroma is important in this sensory evaluation. We’ll post the new schedule in January 2019. Classes will begin at 10A and run about 2 hours.
