Gorgeous, Single Estate, Extra Virgin Olive Oils – Deliciously Good For You
Our ethos is to discover and bring to market only naturally positively good for you foods that celebrate the Mediterranean diet – a diet which is recognised as one of the healthiest in the world.
So we’re delighted to introduce you to our first products: seven, exceptional, single estate, extra virgin olive oils – six, naturally infused, extra virgin olive oils presented in 250ml glass bottles and a 750ml, extra virgin olive oil, for everyday cooking, also in a glass bottle. The best for taste and the best for health.
Our search for extraordinarily delicious and healthy olive oils led us on a journey across the Mediterranean until we arrived in the beautiful Calabria region of Southern Italy.
Here we found the Pata family olive groves in the ancient town of Monte Poro where they’ve lovingly nurtured and created oils of exceptional taste and quality in the traditional way since 1910.
Made solely from olives of the Ottobratica variety, Positively Good For You Extra Virgin Olive Oils are high in polyphenol antioxidants for a healthy heart.*
Harvested as the olives turn a beautiful rainbow of greens and purples, they are pressed and bottled within hours on the estate where they are grown with the olives for our infused oils combined “agrumato” in the traditional Italian way with the whole fresh fruits, herbs or spices, producing an exceptional taste fusion – creating a range of oils that are perfect for cooking, for dressings or drizzled over salads, vegetables, pasta, fish and meat, adding zest and exciting flavour twists to every dish.
(Don’t confuse our oils with inferior oils which have had flavoring added to plain oil – ours are produced by crushing the whole fruit, herbs or spices with the olives when they are pressed.)
Our stunning, plain, extra virgin olive oil is vibrant, fresh and grassy with notes of almond and vanilla making it the perfect oil for dipping and it enhances the flavour of all foods making it an oil for everyday use.
