Chef’s Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Our Chef’s Blend uses an assertive olive varietal with warm toasted almond notes as the base. A select portion of Estate Grown Olives are allowed to ripen beyond the yellow-green stage to achieve a floral spicy and grassy bouquet with a ripe and nutty flavor. The delicate intensity of this olive oil blend comes from a varietal that offers tropical aromas and herbal flavors. The result is an outstanding trio of soft aroma and gently fruity flavors. It pairs well with warm comfort foods like cooked beans, mild soups and pasta. 250ml (8.5 oz)
Our olives are grown, milled and harvested directly from an Estate with over 500 acres of olive trees in Northern California. There are 17 different single varietals of olives grown here alone making this producer the most awarded Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the country. The past decade has seen an accelerated interest in Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO). The demand in the US has doubled, and today 94% of America’s olive oil supply is imported; and only 6% are being produced and consumed in the United States. Grade standards, labeling and compliance for olive oil authenticity and quality is inconsistent from country to country. It typically takes 3 Months for olive oil to arrive to the U.S. from Italy, Spain or Greece (the world’s major importers of olive oil). It is not uncommon for the bottles to sit on a shelf for weeks or even months thereafter. Discerning the truth has not been an easy path for food lovers to navigate. All of our oils are certified by the Olive Oil Commission of California.
On average, our bottles remain on our shelves no longer than 14 days. Our oils are blended and remain in stainless steel tanks until they are ready for bottling. We bottle our oils every 3 weeks to ensure our customers are getting the freshest olive oil and we hand fill and label each one.
