Buy our fantastic extra virgin olive oil, delivered direct to your door from the heart of Tuscany
If you would like to buy some of our oil, please use the Paypal button below or email us with your questions and requirements.
Our prices for 2013/4 are as follows:
5 litre tin €80 plus shipping
3 litre tin €60 plus shipping
These prices are unusually high. A 5L can usually sells for €65. Unfortunately, last year (2014) was a terrible year across Italy, and we didn't pick a single olive. An Olive Fly invasion ruined most of the olives in Italy, so we weren't alone in having no crop to pick. We have some 2013 oil left, which we are hoping will last until the next crop in November 2015. The prices are elevated slightly to help us recover some of our costs in 2014, and to help ensure our stock lasts until the next harvest.
We need a delivery address and a cell number for the courier, and all orders are usually acknowledged and shipped within 24 hour, so you should get your oil delivered to your door within a week.
Our oil is 100% organic. We don't do anything to our trees except prune them and pick them. The olives are hand-picked and pressed at a local frantoio certified to handle organic produce, and the oil temperature never gets above 24°C (hence the 'cold-pressed' part, though this is now a little-used term). The oil is then slowly gravity-filtered to remove any water and surplus organic material which helps give the oil a longer life. Then we bottle it. That's all.
We will also consider larger volume purchases (though not massive - we are not a large producer) from high-quality restaurants and delicatessens.
Frequently asked questions about buying our olive oil
Q: Shipping looks expensive! Wouldn't it be better to buy my oil from a local deli?
A: If you find a good oil from a local deli then great, but check the prices first. In almost every case, it's cheaper to buy a 5L tin from us, shipped to your door, than to buy an expensive oil with dubious provenance from a deli. Don't think of buying from a supermarket if you want real oil.
Q: Is there any way to reduce my shipping cost?
A: Yes. Club together with friends and family, and buy your oil together. Buying your oil this way can reduce shipping costs by more than 50%.
Q: How long does oil last?
A: If you look after it, then it can last a long time. Keep the oil in its tin, and in cool conditions, and it can last over 3 years. It will start to loose favour and colour after 2 years, but it's still good for cooking and bread-making. Freeze your oil in small batches and it'll last forever!
