More about our OLIVE OILS
The Olives we use are grown and pressed by artisan farmers in organically focused farms from around the world. These olives are harvested green and pressed within 4 hours of harvest resulting in the freshest, highest quality, Ultra-Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oils. We strongly believe that Extra Virgin Olive Oil is like fruit juice: highly perishable, healthier and more flavorful when consumed fresh. Therefore, we post the Harvest Date on our Ultra-Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oils so that you can be sure of the freshness of our products.
In addition to the insuring the freshness of our oils, we are extremely fanatical when it comes to the “chemistry”of olive oils. We post several chemical measures of our olive oils so that our customers may gather different aspects of the product, including the polyphenol count which dictates the flavor intensity, Free Fatty Acid which measures the smoke point of the oil, Oleic acid which predicts the mono-unsaturated fat levels in the oil.
More about our BALSAMIC VINEGARS
Balsamic vinegar is a vinegar originating from Italy, increasingly popular throughout the world. The original, costly, traditional balsamic vinegar is made from a reduction of cooked white Trebbiano grape juice. It has been produced in Modena and Reggio Emilia since the Middle Ages, being mentioned in a document dated 1046. Our flavored vinegars are made by infusing plant essence into balsamics. We have both dark and white balsamics. Both are made in the same way except that the white balsamics have not been caramelized and therefore remain colorless. Our Balsamic Vinegars are all natural with no artificial flavors or ingredients. No added sugars or caramel color dyes are ever used.
