We're just like you
We also want fresh, healthy, and fraudulent-free
Let us tell you about this little farm in southern Spain
where we found it, why our sourcing ensures authentic fraudulent-free olive oil
, and why it's the most delicious and healthiest
version of olive oil available in a single olive oil, backed by our taste guarantee.
You’ll flip out over the taste! We guarantee it
For us to consider an olive oil for dipping, drizzling, and finishing, not only must it be fresh, and authentic…. The taste MUST blow us away. Otherwise, it’s just for cooking. Our fans describe our oil as:
”Ridiculously delicious AND the healthiest version of olive oil in a single bottle”.
In fact, we’re so confident that the taste will blow you away, that we offer a TASTE GUARANTEE. I don’t think anyone else is doing this in the industry, and we stand firmly behind the product that we meticulously source.
Tasty and healthy don’t usually hang together, and it all comes down to the combination of three important things
that makes this the most delicious and healthiest olive oil you’ve ever tasted:
FRESH - freshness is hand’s down the most critical characteristic of a healthy extra virgin olive oil. Freshness to us means it’s from this season’s harvest. The health-promoting properties of olive oil are reduced through time, so the fresher the olive oil, the healthier it is for you. Unfortunately, what we have available in supermarkets is...well, just not fresh. It could be two or three years old (and it tastes like it).
ORGANIC - like Mother Nature intended us to live and eat, protecting the olive grove by natural means only, without pesticides or human-made fertilizers.
EARLY HARVEST - All olives are first green, then fully ripen to a jet black. Green olives are harvested earlier, at their peak of antioxidants and flavor. In the US, the olive oil available to consumers in supermarkets comes from harvesting the jet black olives. An independent 3rd party analyzed this olive oil and measured its polyphenol antioxidant content of 545 mg/kg!
Our secret sauce is in our sourcing
Concerned that you might be paying too much for the olive oil at the supermarket? Want to avoid fraudulent olive oil? We are too, and are super distrustful of most mass-produced products (vitamins, powders, hotdogs, etc.). We like to go to the source when we can. That’s why we started this business with the approach that we call from grove to table®.
The secret sauce is in our sourcing where we interview, inspect, and taste olive oil from scores of small farms in Spain. We assess farms across five categories (single estate, agriculture, harvesting, milling, and passion), and select the groves and families that best represent them. This approach ensures the olive oil is authentic / fraud-free, and provides an exceptional product that we feel proud of bringing back to our fans’ tables.
Single estate is ”MUY BUENO”
This unique and majestic grove is Cortijo Espiritu Santo in the province of Jaén, Spain
. It’s a small farm, run by an extremely passionate family
that has been doing this for generations.
Why single estate is much preferred:
They use only the olives from their property. No mixing of olives from other countries or even other estates which would differ in the consistent processes used to harvest and produce the oil. Supermarket olive oils gather their olives from up to eight countries! Imagine buying a Merlot that was a mix from eight different countries - no thank you!
The mill is on-premise, which means the time from harvest to production is reduced to nothing, which has a dramatic impact on the quality of the olive oil. For example, if olives are sitting after harvesting for more than 24 hrs, that will no longer produce a quality olive oil.
You won’t find an oil like this anywhere else in the US
Elsewhere, if you look very hard, you may come across fresh
olive oil. And you can definitely find organic
olive oil. Will you find early harvest
? I think so, in some remote corner of a gourmet store in downtown New York. But you won’t find all three together
in the same olive oil unless you travel to Spain, enter an olive grove that is unfit for your rental car, pass a few sheep, take the wrong turn and wind up lost in a gigantic olive grove that has endless rows of trees and is part of the largest human-made forest in the world, pass the same few sheep again though you thought you were going straight, get out of the car, look up at the sky and yell at Siri (because you can), get back in the car, drive six endless miles through grove “caminos” (paths) and finally greet grove master Pablo, who knows all too well what you’ve just been through, all because you used your smartphone map instead of just asking him for directions. The journey has just begun.
The point is you can skip the adventures and get it here at OLIVE OIL GROVE.
You preserve the landscapes
Authentic olive oils like the one we source preserve the majestic landscapes that mesmerize the world. And clearly, they also support the hard working families that have spent generations cultivating the lands and making it their life’s passion to create the best olive oil possible. We support these landscapes and families.
