OLV Olive Oil

OLV Olive Oil

First time in the states! Big, bold oil from La Mancha.

This is not oil for the faint of heart.  It’s got a big, bold flavor that comes on strong but finishes smooth.  I like to use it in flavorful dishes that can stand up to its intensity.  It’s fantastic over grilled steak or vegetables; on good bread with tomato and roasted garlic; in peppery salads.

This extra virgin olive oil is made from olives grown by the Flores family in La Mancha, the region in southern Spain that’s best known as the home of Don Quixote.  The Flores family is passionate about producing great oil.  When they decided to get their olive groves certified organic, they didn’t stop there: they also helped to inspire 87 of their closest olive-growing neighbors to go organic, too.

The most recent harvest from fall 2019 is definitely complex. It has a strong, bitter vegetal flavor, like eggplant or zucchini, along with a mild sweetness. There's a slight hint of pepper, but it doesn't overtake the other flavors.
