At Coldani Olive Ranch we are literally a "Family Business". Our immediate family along with our spouses and a few little ones is what encompasses our company; handling every aspect from tree to bottle. Growing the olives, processing them into oil, bottling, packaging design, marketing, sales and shipping are just a few of the tasks we split up as a family. When we say we know each and every bottle inside and out, we mean it, and we feel the passion we have to produce a quality extra virgin olive oil resonates in our finished product. All of our extra virgin olive oil is estate grown; we don't use any pesticides and our product is organically and sustainably produced from our family owned and operated farm. Our Calivirgin olive oils have consistently medaled in all of the national competitions making us one of the most awarded companies in the nation; popular for their fresh, aromatic, fruity flavor that is perfect for dipping but mild enough to use as a culinary staple in your kitchen. Our flavored olive oils have been milled the exact same way as our premium extra virgin olive oil, except they have been crushed together with fresh produce/herbs. The result is a naturally flavored oil with no additives or preservatives. At Calivirgin, we believe our olive oil is so good it should be on the wine list. Enjoy!
All of our Extra Virgin Olive Oils have been Seal-Certified by the California Olive Oil Council (COOC). A Seal-Certified olive oil offers the highest standard of quality to American consumers with positive taste elements, no taste defects, andless than .5% free oleic acid, as determined during a blind tasting by a qualified panel of experts. Seal-Certified olive oil also comes from olives that are mechanically extracted without chemicals or excessive heat. As stated by the COOC, “Trust the Seal - Your Extra Virgin Guarantee.” Any oil that does not bear the seal has no guarantee that it has been tested to meet any standards at all as there is currently no mandatory testing for quality of olive oil sold in the United States.
