CRETE GOLD PDO KOLYMVARI: Produced in the small PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) region of Kolymvari, Crete Gold is pressed from 100% Koroneiki olives. The oil is extraordinarily well-balanced with aromas of green apple, fresh cut grass and artichoke with a pleasantly light peppery finish. Koroneiki olive oil is famous for pairing well with nearly any food such as pulses, bean soups, fresh garden salads, fried potatoes, grilled vegetables and fish, and is a fantastic oil for nearly any cooking application.
VIOLA COLLERUITA DOP UMBRIA COLLI ASSISI SPOLETO: Picked from the Moraiolo, Frantoio, and Leccino variety olives grown on the hills of Roviglieto and Scandolaro in Colli Assisi Spoleto. These carefully selected fruits give this typical Umbrian oil an intense lingering aroma of green olives and artichoke with a harmonious balance of pungent and peppery flavors. With its intriguing aroma, it is ideal for lentil or vegetable soups, tuna and swordfish carpaccio and enhances the taste of beef tagliata, barbecued lamb chops and vegetables au gratin. It is also the perfect oil for making an olive oil gelato and ice cream.
CASTELINES CLASSIC AOP VALLEE DES BAUX DE PROVENCE: This extra-virgin olive oil is the result of carefully blending the four typical olive varieties (Salonenque, Aglandau, Grossane and Verdale) of the AOP Vallée des Baux de Provence. Cold extraction at the Castelas Mill within 6 hours of harvesting helps to retain the vegetal fruity character of the olive oil and preserve the subtle and complex features of Domaine CastelaS. The resulting oil has an aromatic persistence with attractive flavors of raw artichoke, almond, apple and tomato plant. It is subtly bitter with a peppery edge that appears after a few seconds in the mouth.
VENTA DEL BARON: Since 1998 Venta del Barón, included in the PDO Priego de Córdoba, has received more than 80 awards in 8 different countries, which include "World's Best Olive Oil" by the International Olive Council as well as "Spain's Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil" from the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture. The PDO Priego de Córdoba is located in the very heart of Andalusia in the Sierras Subbéticas Natural Park. Due to its unique microclimate, the area produces internationally recognized olive oils of extraordinary quality. At the Muela olive mill in Priego de Córdoba, where the oil of Venta del Barón comes to life, the olives are cold pressed less than 15 hours after picking so that the genuine aroma of the olives is preserved, and only the best "juice" is selected according to the strict rules of the PDO Priego de Córdoba. The result is a luminous oil with intense fruity aromas of green herbs, peppermint, almond, banana and apple. Its flavor is reminiscent of vegetables such as tomatoes and artichoke, and has a slightly bitter and spicy finish.
