Alziari Olive Oil

A twenty-year love affair.

It's now been over two decades since I first fell in love with Alziari, the old shop in the historic center of Nice, on France’s Côte d’Azur. Their extra virgin olive oil is exceptional and typically Niçoise—light, flowery and elegant but still full of character and charisma. I could use the same phrase to describe the tin it comes in. It's such a beautiful package that it makes one of the best gifts from our catalog; it needs no wrapping.

The oil is perfect for a traditional salade niçoise made with potatoes, tomatoes, cucumber, Niçoise olives, basil, green beans and good olive oil-packed tuna. Gourmet, Fine Cooking and Travel & Leisure have all written about how they love Alziari. It’s been one of our most popular oils for years.

The newest harvest, from late 2016, is incredibly rich and buttery. It's thick and creamy on the tongue. It would be awesome poured over fish—or over popcorn, in place of butter.

Full disclosure: this oil is not made from 100% French-grown olives. The Alziaris also source olives from Spain and Italy, from growers they've worked with for decades. They still press all of the olives within 24 hours of picking.

"Floral and feminine, Alziari is a classic niçoise oil from the Côte d'Azur."
