If you read my previous post about Why I NEVER Buy Extra Virgin Olive Oil Unless I Know the Grower, you also read that I never really liked olive oil. I hate to admit that, but it’s the truth. I never liked the taste of olive oil — too heavy for salad dressing and way too heavy for mayonnaise. I’m happy to say those days are gone.
I have found the most amazing certified organic, extra virgin olive oil made from olives that are hand picked at the peak of ripeness and completely unadulterated. It’s from the Sparta Valley of Greece on land that has been growing olives since 1856.
This brand, Olea Estates certified organic, extra virgin olive oil actually found me at the 2013 Wise Traditions Conference. I say found me truthfully, because as I walked the vast vendor area of the conference for three days, I kept passing the Olea booth because I had essentially written olive oil off.
For some reason the oil kept reaching out to me as I passed by. I finally stopped and spoke to Karl Burgart, (the main distributor in the US), about the oil, tasted the oil (grudgingly), spoke to Karl some more about the oil and the way the olives were grown, harvested and minimally processed — how the oil was bottled right down the road from the orchard — tasted some more…
And I was hooked.
I’m so excited to host a giveaway of this fantastic oil! Karl Burgart of Olea Estates Distribution, Inc. is generously giving one of my readers a case of the 250 ml bottles of this fabulous extra virgin olive oil!
