Liquid Gold… Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Liquid Gold… Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2608 1952 Villa Modica

Fall and the olive harvest is in full swing, we produce one of the finest extra virgin olive oil in our area, the trick to get great olive oil is to harvest the olives by hand, hand select only the best quality, reason is the hand picking avoids brushing the fruit, if the olive is bruised then immediately a chemical process starts within the olive that would increase the acidity in the oil, making it of a lesser quality, then mill the olives within 24 hrs of picking, the cold pressing of the olives paste must be done at a low temperature, thats how all the aromas and flavors of the oil are preserved.
