Celebrating Ten Years!!

 

We opened in 2004.  Since then, we've learned a lot about olive oil.

But more importantly, we've learned what you want—all the flavor and healthful benefits that only real, fresh extra virgin olive oil can offer.  

Today, we're at seven farmers markets in Maryland and DC, and the new Union Market in northeast Washington.

Olive oil shops are popping up everywhere now, but unlike them, we won't sell you a bottle of olive oil filled from a steel tank.

Since we started ten years ago, we've worked exclusively with small, family-owned farms in northern and central California. They bottle your oil.

Only this way can you really know who made your oil, when they pressed it, and where they pressed it.  In the slippery food category of olive oil, where federal quality standards are strictly voluntary, these basic facts are essential. 

While you're here, find out more about our California olive oil producers. They're making some of the best extra virgin olive oil in America today.  

Also take a moment to explore our site and discover how real, fresh extra virgin olive oil is made, and why it's such a rare treat.

We hope to offer you a taste soon!
