Extra-virgin olive oil is great by itself, better when drizzled over salad, and best when slicked across Pavarotti’s windpipes. Savor the tastes and smells of olives with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a private olive-oil tasting for 8–10 people at The True Olive Connection (a $20/person value; up to a $200 total value). The tasting includes the following:

  • Unlimited tasting of olive oil and vinegar
  • Wine and hors d’oeuvres
  • 10% off in-store purchases<p>

One Groupon covers the party costs for 8–10 people.<p>

Imported from the many olive-producing corners of the globe, The True Olive Connection’s treasury of 30 freshly made, cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oils accentuates the flavor profiles of vinegars, wine, and hors d’oeuvres during private tasting sessions. Culinary experts lead oil-sampling groups of 8–10 through the shop’s many flavors—which include basil, blood orange, and garlic—and offer insights into the oil’s country of origin, method of production, and ability to coat a Greco-Roman wrestler. Mingling with olive flavors, more than 20 varieties of imported white and balsamic vinegar add a piquant punch while wine and hors d’oeuvres further enliven palates already tingling with the tangy pressings of tree fruits. Medium-sized bottles of chipotle extra-virgin olive oil ($15) smolders with the spicy personality of a tabasco-soaked flamenco dancer, and lavender balsamic vinegar ($15) lingers on lips with a sweet, floral aftertaste. Sampler bottles are also available in packs of six, providing an opportunity to sample a swath of various oils. As tongues slowly process the complex bouquet of flavors, tasters can browse the shop’s inventory of bottles, which are available to Groupon holders at a 10% discount.
