BUY SPANNOCCHIA’S ORGANIC EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL!!!
Have you run out of the Spannocchia olive oil that you so carefully transported home with you after your visit to the farm? Or perhaps you didn’t have enough room in your luggage to bring some back with you the last time; or haven’t yet had the chance to experience Spannocchia firsthand? Here is your chance to buy Spannocchia’s own organic extra virgin olive oil in the United States, and have it delivered right to your door! We have a limited supply of oil from our 2012 harvest available and we are giving our members and friends the chance to be first in line for ordering our version of liquid gold.
We have 250ml and 500ml cans available, but quantities are limited. First come first served! This is the first time we have used cans rather than bottles for packaging our oil, and the result is safer and easier shipping and better preservation of the quality of the oil itself.
We will process your order and mail it to you via UPS ground service.
Spannocchia olive oil is a wonderful addition to any meal – as a salad dressing, drizzle for grilled vegetables or bruschetta, or for making a divine insalata caprese with ripe tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and a pinch of salt and pepper! A key ingredient of the Mediterranean Diet, recognized as one of the healthiest in the world, olive oil is not only delicious but good for you as well!
Our oil is made from olives grown organically, hand-picked to ensure quality and freshness, and pressed in a local Tuscan frantoio, or olive press. Tradition is of great importance at Spannocchia, and experience has shown us that often the old ways of doing things are really the best; our olive groves are maintained and tended much as they have been for centuries, but we’ve also seen that for the processing of the olives into oil, modern technology has developed methods for achieving a much higher quality of oil than was ever possible in the past. The Frantoio Etrusco which we frequent utilizes this new “continuous cycle” methodology, and the result is indeed evident in the fruity spiciness and overall quality of our delicious oil.
At Spannocchia, we consider the olive to be a sacred fruit, and have an enormous amount of respect for the value that olives and their oil add to the culture and history of Italy and Tuscany. What will arrive at your doorstep this fall is the end result of hard work on the part of many interns, volunteers, and staff at Spannocchia; your purchase helps to ensure that we will be able to offer this experience to many more interns and volunteers in the future!
