OLIVE OIL HARVEST 2013

IMG_3799Villa Lucia’s 2013 olive harvest has begun. Our hand pickers have begun this week to pick by hand the certified organic olives that shortly after picking will be pressed into what we consider our liquid gold. Stored immediately after pressing into stainless steel containers, our oil will be ready to be shipped to Luciana’s Ristorante in Dana Pt. California, as well as other locations to meet the requests from our regular and new customers, Supplies are limited but we estimate that we should have as in previous years about 2000 liters of organically certified extra virgin olive oil, meeting the requirements of the International Olive Oil Council.olive_branch

After years of not becoming involved in the classification and verification of meeting the standards of the IOOC, the USAD and the FDA has finally recognized the merits of this food item and the necessity to end one of the largest frauds in the food business. Olive oils finally are being controlled and certified by the FDA, eliminating many of the expensive brands that have infiltrated the market and were nothing but refined oils. fooling the public with products that could be costly but lacked the nutritional value and health benefits. Thanks go to the FDA which Villa Lucia hopes will continue to see that refined oils and blends that do not meet the standards of the IOOC will no longer be permitted to infiltrate the market with false labeling
and deceive the public.
OIL BOTTLE
Our oils can be ordered by email, vl@villaluciaoftuscany.com, and will be met asap after pressing. They are sold in gift stainless steel containers of 250 ml for 20 euros(28 dollars) or 3 liter family stainless steel family containers for 150 euros(205 dollars), not including shipping. We ship refills in tins that are good for temporary storage to be used to refill stainless containers. We suggest that our oils be used as a condiment to enhance flavors and not as a frying oil which the refined commercially sold oils can best meet that need. Our production is once a year so best to buy the necessary quantity if able to maintain it in a cool, environment, or Villa Lucia may store in our large stainless steel cellar containers and ship during the year to meet a new request as well as to refill orders.
