Fresno state Estate: New olive oil release and tasting Wednesday

The new release of Fresno State’s award-winning yet improved 2006 Estate Reserve Olive Oil will be presented during a special tasting Wednesday, March 7, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Fresno State Farm Market, located at the southeast corner of Chestnut and Barstow avenues.

Orchard Manager Gino Favagrossa will conduct the tasting of the student-produced virgin olive oil that won a bronze medal at the prestigious San Diego Bay Wine and Food Festival in November. That 2005 Estate Reserve was sold out in December and has been in demand since then. The new release also will be carried at We Olive in the Fig Garden Shopping Center in Fresno.

The tasting, which is free and open to the public, will feature sourdough bread dipped in the olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Please note that Chestnut Avenue is closed due to road improvements. Visitors should access the store from Barstow, east of Chestnut, and enter at the north driveways.
