About Extra Virgin Olive Oil Production
To be able to call an olive oils Extra Virgin, it needs to be manufacture according to an international set of specifications. The three most important criteria are that the oil comes from the first pressing of the olives, that there is no heat involved in the pressing process (this is called “cold pressed”), and that the resulting oil is below 1% acidity. Therefore, to refer to an extra virgin olive oils as “First cold pressed” is technically redundant. Oil that does not satisfy these criteria fall into lower grades, like Virgin, Pure or Pomace.

Like cheeses and wines, Extra Virgin Olive Oils benefit from the concept of terroir. Terroir implies that the flavor of a food comes from the environment of its production, explaining why. For example, a California merlot may taste vastly different from the same wine produced in northern Italy. Temperature, humidity, minerals purity, animals living nearby contribute to the flavors produced by a given olive tree. Some regions produce light and fruity oils whereas others produce more forceful, spicier profiles. For more information, please visit our Extra Virgin Olive Oil boutique.
The ideal environment for storing extra virgin olive oil is at a relatively constant temperature between 55ºF and 70ºF. Refrigeration does not harm most EVOOs, but if possible we should avoid it because of condensation concerns. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is best store in a dark area as sunlight will breakdown the oil and degrade the product over time. When chill, extra virgin olive oils turns cloudy and somewhat solid. This is not a concern, and the oil will liquify again when it warms to room temperature. For more information, please visit our Extra Virgin Olive Oils boutique.
