Oleoteca® Villa Campestri now open in Alicante, Spain

After conquering the U.S., OliveToLive has landed in Spain: on December 1st, 2011 was in fact opened a new Oleoteca® Villa Campestri in Alicante. A dedicated space for the Oleoteca® Villa Campestri has been created in the restaurant Monastrell, owned by Michelin-starred Chef Maria Josè San Roman, famous for her passion for olive oil.Maria Josè San Roman has participated in “AmorOlio” at Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort last October and here she enjoyed OliveToLive, a patented olive oil storage system invented by Paolo Pasquali for extra-virgin olive oil maintenance under nitrogen and under temperature-controlled. The worst enemies of olive oil are known to be oxygen, light and heat. Every time we open a bottle of olive oil or we expose it to heat or light, the process of decay of its organoleptic and nutritional properties begins. Therefore, after extensive research, Paolo Pasquali, has invented an innovative machine, OliveToLive, that now has landed in Spain.

During the inauguration, which was also attended by Paolo Pasquali, a special dinner with 9 different extra-virgin olive oils prepared by Chef San Roman was served. Brigida Jimenez Herrera, Director of IFAP in Cabra, and one of the leading experts in the world of olive oil has led a wonderful tasting of the 9 different olive oils, explaining their organoleptic characteristics.

Inside the restaurant Monastrell, there is also an Olive Oil Shop corner where you can find several extra-virgin olive oil signed by Oleoteca® Villa Campestri and certified by Herrera. You can find all the photos of the inauguration in our FB album “Oleoteca® Villa Campestri around the world“.

Even the spanish Broadcaster RTVV gave space to this news with a beautiful TV Report!

The Oleoteca® of Alicante is our second Oleoteca® in the world after the one in California at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America.
