This is a balanced medium extra virgin olive oil. The beauty of Frantoio Grove's oil is its rounded character of the bitter elements and the restrained pungency. All tasting elements work in harmony to provide a delightful taste. It's a complex oil with a lot of pleasant bitter persistence. The flavors of green herbs would work well with salad greens or in meals where you want an oil that is not overpowering.

About the Producer:
More than 11 years ago, Jeff Martin had a choice to make. His family had been growing grapes in the Yolo/Napa area since 1870 and his mother and brother are currently growing grapes in Sonoma. The obvious choice was to grow grapes, instead he planted olives. In order to find a way to differentiate himself in a crowded market, Jeff was drawn by the Tuscan blends, in the end he chose a single varietal, Frantoio. Jeff's mission is to grow very good olive oil and sell to his neighbors. After winning several awards, we think his neighborhood is growing.
