Olive Oil Shop

At Cooking Vacations, we produce extra virgin first cold-pressed olive oil from precious olives grown under the warm Mediterranean sun in rich volcanic soil and with salty sea winds. We care for 600 trees, each one over one-hundred-years-old, growing healthy olives that are then cold-pressed into extra virgin olive oil.

During the autumn harvest, the olives are picked by hand and immediately pressed on cold stones – therefore the oil has a very low acidic level because there is no oxidation. The olive oil is then bottled in green glass bottles which keeps the sun out preventing any oxidation.

Our olive oil has a hint of almond and artichoke due to the two nearby orchards that add to the cross-pollination. Its emerald green color ensures a fresh and pungent flavor.

Extra virgin means that the oil was from the first pressing and cold-pressed means it was pressed without heat. We follow these strict guidelines in order for the oil to be extra virgin and first-cold-pressed. DOP is the Denominazione di Origine Protetta, means that the olive oil has an origin protected domain of production.

Our trees are tenderly cared for throughout the season following biodynamic and organic farming practices meaning soil is kept pure to keep the level of oleic acid very low and natural vitamins and minerals high.

In addition to our extra virgin, we also produce lemon, chilli pepper and rosemary olive oil.
