St Helena Olive Oil Company Saint Helena Reviews
"Pitty" good oil May 22, 2010
Most of us get our olive oil from a market. I really didn't put that much thought into olive oil except that extra virgin first cold press was considered the creme de la creme. But....the thing is that olives are treated much the same way as grapes, at St. Helena Olive Oil Co. in St. Helena. Where olives are grown, where they are picked and how they are pressed makes a big difference in texture, taste, and color.
St. Helena Olive Oil Co. had all the answers to my questions about olive oil and the many types. Sitting in the middle of Napa Valley wine country, makes the visit even more enjoyable. There are many estates from which the olives are harvested and each has their own bottling, no blending, so that you get the taste of that varietal grown in that terrior in the Napa Valley. They also have a variety of vinegars and soaps that that are really good for the skin.
