Extra Virgin Olive Oil Italy, Spain, France and California
2017 Harvest…. a lot of it is here so it is time to celebrate.
The 2017 Harvest in Italy and Spain was late again due to the drought for the 2nd year in a row. Yields will be down but the stress on the trees will once again produce some spectacular Olive Oils.
About 2/3s of our selections from the 2017 Harvest are in stock…. from what I can see prices have definitely gone up a bit. But our 3 bottle deal with free freight is still the best deal to be found in the country.
We made it really easy to shop for the Fresh Harvest that is heading our way. Just scroll down and click on any of the product images and it will take you straight to the shopping site where there is a good description of each of the Olive Oils.
Delicate & Light Fruit Olive Oils…
Just because they are little lighter doesn’t mean they don’t have lots of flavor. For me Delicate and Light are more about the mouth feel. These are great all round oils in the kitchen. Cook with it and pour Olive Oil on just about everything you eat.

Medium to Medium-Plus Fruit…
These are a little more of a mouth full but still great for all-round use in the kitchen.
These oils are big, spicy and pungent. The best chefs in the world use them as finishing sauces. It is their secret weapon. It is like adding the right bitters to a a cocktail. The flavor components and the fats in olive oil combine with the foods to create something so much more delicious. Don’t mind the prices as a little goes a long way.
Shopping Tips… the Bargains
Any of the bottles priced from $18.50-$29 are just super values. The Giuliana Fresh Harvest,, Paniole and De Carlo Classico come in 750 ml. Bottles rather than the standard 500 ml. size. The Classico also comes in a 1 Liter Tin for just a dollar more.
Bonamini, Alberto Romano, Oleoestepa (Egregio, and Virgin), Franci Villa Magra, La Cultivada, De Carlo Torre Di Mossa and Felice Garibaldi at $20-$29 are ridiculous bargains and are as good as any of the $30+ bottles.
The $30+ bottles in their own right are values in the sense that you find these in very few retailers and if you do they are much more expensive, They are worth the money due to the scarcity in the varietals as well as the terroir and the producers are an elite group. Plus we always tell you the harvest date, bottle sizes.
Have fun shopping and if you have questions don’t be afraid to pick op the phone or send us a text.
