How to select your olive oil

We purchase all of our olive oils directly from the importer and/or producer.  We know these people well, we have been dealing with them for many years.  They are true experts in their fields and geographic regions.


Here’s what you should be looking for when buying quality extra virgin olive oil:

  • Estate bottled: This means that olives are grown, picked and pressed on the same grove by the same family/small producer typically daily vs being trucked in from various places and left to sit around for days.  

  • Single Varietal: Specific olive varieties identified on the label.  Again, this points to traceability but also flavour.  Buttery, grassy, fruity, peppery - every olive will give you a different flavour.  

  • Harvest dates: ideally the most recent fall harvest and if no harvest date listed just ensure best before date is within two years.
