I'm no expert on olive oils but an old Italian couple , who were my neighbours for many years , gave me some good advice . " The older the Grape the younger the Olive ". They told me to look for good locally produced Extra Virgin Olive oil as imported products would not be as fresh as local due to shipping time . They had their own olive trees and when they pressed the olives , within hours of being picked , they would drop a few bottles in .
Nothing you can buy could come near their produce . Thick , full flavoured with goodness , a treat I will always remember .
