2023 Harvest Olive Oil from California

Made from Frantoio, a Tuscan olive cultivar, this current harvest extra virgin olive oil showcases fruity notes of banana and persimmon with a punchy black pepper spice and touch of bitterness. A medium-intensity oil. 

Frantoio Grove's 2023 extra virgin olive oil marks the beginning of their journey into regenerative agriculture. Farmers and millers Jeff and Patrick Martin take great care to preserve its integrity. The olives are milled immediately after harvest, then the filtered oil is stored in an oxygen-free environment until it gets bottled in small batches. 

How to use

This bottle is a staple on our table for finishing our favorite dishes. The oil's pleasant bitterness and rich herbal notes stand up to bigger, bolder flavors—use to garnish slices of seared steak, drizzle over grilled radicchio or pour over earthy buckwheat polenta and top with plenty of grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

After back surgery ...

My friend, who endured big surgery on her back, was so pleased to receive the assortment of foods. She said that the package lightened her spirits a great deal. I am SO pleased.
