The OSAJ organized the Olive harvesting tour for Shodoshima Island, one of the most major production site in Japan on November 18th. 15 OSAJ members were enjoyed this natural gift in the olive orchard as it was really nice weather, good harvest this year.
The tour visited “i’s Life Olive Orchard”, which produced the Gold Medal Awarded extra virgin olive oil at OLIVE JAPAN 2012, as well as “Yamasan Olive Orchard”, which is really unique JAS-Organic Olive orchard. Both orchards are managed by OSAJ’s Olive Oil Sommelier and Junior Sommelier. (The photo left = i’ s Life Olive Orchard, the photo right= Yamasan Organic Olive Orchard)
