Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Extra virgin olive oil is what we do best. When we first started up, we had but one product - a tall cobalt blue bottle of extra virgin oil produced from our grove of 130 year old Spanish olive trees. Over the years we have expanded our offering and enlarged our groves, but making the region’s best olive oil remains the core of what we do.
Our extra virgin olive oils range in taste from mild and sweet to bold and peppery, depending on the type of olives used and the method of milling them into olive oil. Our Andalucian oil is our most bold and peppery, with a robust flavor and sharp finish. Crafted mostly from our 130 year old Lechin de Sevilla trees, with some Hojiblanca olives as well, this olive oil is powerful. Our Tuscan oil is more middle of the road, with a peppery flavor that is more green and fruity, and less sharp. This oil is crafted from our Leccino, Pendolino, and Frantoio trees, the very finest varieties from Tuscany. Our most mild and sweet olive oil is our Provencale, crafted from mostly Columella and Picholene olives. These varieties from the south of France produce a particularly smooth and fruity oil. Our Signature olive oil is a more robust and sharp olive oil, designed to have maximal health benefits. This oil is produced from less ripe olives, and ones with higher polyphenol and carotenoid levels.
Please remember that high quality extra virgin olive oils should be kept like wine – in a cool dark place, and sealed air-tight. The big difference though is that olive oil should be used quickly! Unlike wine, olive oil will only degrade in quality over time, so it’s best when it’s fresh. We only sell olive oil that was made in the current season, so nothing you get from us will ever be more than 12 months old. Extra virgin olive oil has a shelf life of 18 months, so you will always have a minimum of 6 months to consume our oil at its best.
