Los Angeles 2017 Gold Medal

 We're thrilled to have Villa Zottopera Organic. An outstanding Sicilian oil - great as a finishing oil - produced from Tonda Iblea olive groves dating back to the 14th Century. From the area of Ragusa in southern Sicily. Unfiltered. EU Organic. 


Great care is taken in hand-picking the olives. This ensures the integrity of the drupe. The olives are immediately sent to the press for crushing with modern cold extraction. The oil settles for a brief period of decantation, before bottling.

Fruity with a slightly bitter component and peppery finish. Ideal on fresh vegetables, fish, and bruschetta. Wonderful on roasted meats.

The Villa is open for guests. If you are planning a trip to Sicily, this would be a great place to spend a few days.
