Launch of the New Season’s Olive Oil, at Ballymaloe on Wednesday 9th November 2011
Wines and Olive Oil of Tuscany,
Wednesday 9th November at Ballymaloe
We had an amazing day with the launch and masterclasses of the new season’s Tuscan Olive Oil.
I hope some of these photographs can convey the excitment and sense of occasion in Ballymaloe throughout the day – Billy Lyons ‘Restaurants and Food in Cork’ also has written a very nice article about the launch here.
And also see ‘The Vine Inspiration’ wine blog nice article here on the Winemakers Dinner that evening at Ballymaloe House
Pictured, in the entrance hall at the cookery school, are Bea Contini Bonacossi, from Capezzana, Carmignano www.capezzana.it, Federico Giuntini, Selvapiana, Rufina www.selvapiana.it, and David Gleave MW, of Liberty Wines who showed the olive oil of Fontodi www.fontodi.com, along with Darina, Rory and Gillian.
We all very much appreciate the time and effort that Beatrice, Federico and David, took to come to Ballymaloe, and our thanks to them for a memorable day – we look forward hopefully to welcoming them back soon again.
