California Olive Oil

I came across an article in Business Week about California olive oil, and thought it might be of interest.

Is American Olive Oil About to Have Its Moment?

Very interesting. We had a long thread on olive oil last year. Supermarket olive oil is barely worth buying. I'll have to look for California Olive Ranch, though.

I buy good olive oil here: http://www.savortheolive.com

Yes, interesting article. I've bought California Olive Ranch oil when it's been on sale and/or I've had a coupon. However, I still slum it for the basic oil I use when sauteing foods.

GG, we aren't all lucky enough to have an oil purveyor near us. The nearest stores by us that would be similar to your go-to place is over 40 miles just to go to.

My nearest one is 150 miles, but they have a website, so I can satisfy my needs when I can't get to Denver.

I first found good olive oil in Oak Park, IL, when I was visiting my brother and SIL: https://www.oliveandwell.com/#/varietal

I ordered it from the website before a similar store opened here. You could make it a day trip to do a tasting and see what you like, if it's close to other destinations you go to sometimes.

Poked around online a little, came up with a place roughly 25 miles from us. Still, if we want to get out for the afternoon, we could hit this on the way to a brewery-with-restaurant we've been interesting in checking out. Sabor 44 Olive Oil Tap Room

It's nearly twice that far to Providence, which has a couple places due to its high concentration of Italian population. Maybe we'll want to do a Providence run after we sample real olive oil.
