Virgin Grade Olive Oils

When Good Oils Lose the "Extra" in their Virginity

All olive oils that we produce and label as extra virgin are verified by the California Department of Food & Agriculture's Olive Oil Commission, and we stand by those claims. Eventually every fresh product ages, olive oil included, so at a certain point "extra virgin" becomes merely virgin. "Virgin" is a recognized grade standard by the State of California, the US Government, and international agencies as well!

Did you know that most of the olive oil that is produced and consumed in the world is virgin? Sometimes we find a few of our oils no longer meet the extra virgin grade standard, so out of respect to our commitment to truth in labeling, and in acknowledgement that most of the world purchases and consumes virgin grade olive oil today, we offer small lots of such oil at a 60% discount on this page. Please be assured that these oils were made from good quality fruit; they entered the bottle as extra virgin, however just became tired.

For oils that have lost the Extra in their Virginity, we are defacing the logo on our metal cap, adding a sticker under the product name, and marking out the Extra Virgin Alliance and Olive Oil Commission of California seal on the back.  We think it is important for you to know.
