About the Producer:Bondolio was created through Malcolm and Karen Bond's personal study of olive oils from Southern Italy and Sicily. They made several trip there to find oil that would be satisfying to Karen's palette. Once they decided on the varietals of olives(cultivars) to grow, they turned their attention to the farming methods paying attention to grove layout, pruning, harvest, and milling methods with goal of emulating as much of the old world as they could possible do. They have installed their own milling facility to capture oils at peak of flavor. In early winter, each olive in their grove is handpicked and pressed in the classic Italian traditions.
