“To discover the depth and beauty of extra virgin olive oil is to unravel thousands of years of history through a unique tour of the senses.”
Alexis Kerner is a born foodie originally from New Jersey and has been residing in and exploring Andalusia for over 12 years.
She received her BA degree in Environmental Science from Connecticut College and the title as Professional Olive Oil Taster from the University of Jaen and the International Olive Council.
Alexis always had an interest in olive oil, but it wasn’t until the first course in tasting that she truly fell pit, peel, and lenticel for all there is to know about olive oil. It was from this moment that she became inspired to share the knowledge and joy of olive oil with others.
She has more than 16 years of experience in environmental programming in the United States and Spain as well as on a European level.
During her employment in the Andalusian Government she learned the intricate ins and outs of Andalusia´s farms and olive oil mills and was given a unique window into this world.
Alexis also has 15 years of experience in imparting workshops and master courses for tourism and environmental agencies as well as olive oil producers.
Alexis has achieved high tasting ability scores and is on the list of Associate Savants.
