Our best selling olive oil of all time!
Columela Extra Virgin Olive Oil Classic is produced from a blend of four special olives – arbequina, hojiblanca, picual and the rare ocal
Columela's olives are hand-picked - not tree-shaken, which can bruise the fruit and affect the quality of the oil. Columela applies modern technology to the ancient traditions of olive oil production, using the“sinolea” method of oil extraction which doesn’t press, but rather pierces the olives so just the “flower of the oil” comes out through gravity to produce an intensely flavored and highly aromatic oil.
Year after year, Columela Extra Virgin Olive Oil Classic has consistently taken top honors in tastings by "Cook's Illustrated" magazine.
"A blend of intense Picual and mild Hojiblanca olives, this oil took top honors for its fruity flavor and excellent balance. One taster summed it up: 'Bold olive flavor, slightly fruity, medium-to- heavy texture: This is what I think of when I think EVOO.' Another taster simply wrote, 'Fantastic.'
