Product Questions

Our oils are from artisan producers from all over the world! We swap back and forth between northern and Southern Hemisphere so we always have the freshest crush! We carry mild to robust olive oils from South America, Europe, Australia and California. We also have fused and infused oils which are done here in the U.S.

Our olive oils are best consumed as close to the crush date as possible. We recommend using them within 1 year of purchase as they will lose their fresh flavor and polyphenols (which are the antioxidants) over time as they age. Younger is always better!

Ideally, a cool and dark place like a cabinet is best. Do not keep your oils too close to a heat source, like a window or in your refrigerator. To protect your oil from light and heat, a dark bottle is best!

Since we swap back and forth between northern and southern hemisphere there are limited amounts of a particular oil. Like wine, each vintage is different and we will carry a variety of different varieties at any particular time. If you had a favorite our staff can make a recommendation based on one of your favorites!

Most definitely! The fresher the extra virgin olive oil the higher the smoke point will be. You can sauté, grill, bake and fry, but be careful not to smoke the oil as you will lose all the healthy components. Check out of our recipes and videos here on our website for lots of options to use our oils and vinegars.

Yes! But bottle refills are only available in-store. We recommend you run your bottle through the dishwasher and let it completely air dry. We can use your seal or provide you with a new cork and we will reseal your bottle. You may choose whatever oil or vinegar you like for a refill, it does not have to be the same as the original purchase.
