100% Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Authentically Straight From Sicily
First Cold Press.
GROWN AND PRESSED IN SICILY SINCE 1842
Santo Stefano® Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from olives grown and harvested by hand from a single estate in Santo Stefano Quisquina, AG, Sicily, Italy.
Only olives from Santo Stefano Quisquina’s family-owned, century-old olive groves are used to create Santo Stefano® organic extra-virgin olive oil.
The estate follows time-honored and tested processes, allowing them to consistently produce some of the finest olive oil to be found.
Santo Stefano® reflects the history and passion of olive growers, but with a bold, fresh twist. Our Mission is two fold:
... to introduce this extraordinary olio nuovo to new consumers who previously had only experienced the overpriced and lesser quality olive oils on the market.
... to satisfy the gourmet palate, raising the standards of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil to a new, higher level than was previously available..
It is only fitting that Tampa, FL will be importing this exquisite olive oil. This encourages the reuniting of the descendants of the people who emigrated from Santo Stefano to Tampa, FL and who still maintain the characteristic culinary traditions of the home land.
As more and more Sicilians emigrated to the United States, they brought all of their century old traditions, as regards olive oil making, and many other aspects of their home culture. These immigrants tended to choose to group together and live in what is known today as “Little Italy.”
This is a true Sicilian olive oil – full of rich, complex, and aromatic flavors of grassy notes, hints of tomato, artichokes, and well balanced bitter and spicy moderate characteristics. It also exhibits a fruity smell , sometimes with hints of almond, with a sweet aftertaste.
Our Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil has an intense golden yellow color with hints of green.
