Our new Northern Hemisphere Oils have come in! They will be available in a couple of days to let them adjust to room temperature. The descriptions for the new olive oils have been posted under product information! One change that we are still understanding is to our chemical testing. Starting with our new oils, the polyphenol levels that are measured have changed to a new analysis and have more information than before on the different biophenol levels. We are in the process of fully understanding the new method. We will post more information as we get it to help you!
Welcome to a new year!!
Our Northern Hemisphere Olive Oils have arrived and will be available in-store in the next week and a half. Arriving is the Cobrancosa and another favorite, Chiquitita from Portugal, and our award winning Melgarejo Hojiblanca is stunning - a deep emerald green! We will also have a very limited amount of a Sonoma County Italian Blend from California.
Our Olive Oils are tested to the highest standards! Here is a note from our vendor on new lab certified testing:
