Our Story Starts...
with Papa Vince, the cute old man on the label.
He learned the art of making Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) when working as an apprentice for the Knight of De Stefani at the Medieval Castello of Rampinzeri, Santa Ninfa, Italy.
Under the Knights careful guidance, GrandPa learned the SECRET ART of making what he used to call “LIQUID GOLD.”
Papa used to tell us that...
...the fresh winds of the hills were the unending source of his orchards health and fruitfulness. This is why we use NO INSECTICIDES, NO HERBICIDES, NO PESTICIDES.
...nocellara del Belice not only is the sweetest variety, but boast 4-times the shelf life of other varieties. This is why Papa Vince is UNREFINED, UNFILTERED and completely RAW.
Papa Vince entered the USA market March, 2013.
Since then, the excitement that our customers share daily through emails, phone calls and in social media has catapulted us to expand our products beyond Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
In 2016 we decided to partner with local artisans in Sicily to bring to our customers the highest quality possible pastas, tomato sauces, vinegar and sea salt, all made in Sicily by locals with local products.

Not what I expected. Not bad, just not what I was looking for.
I regret not buying the larger size now that I tried the small bottle and discovered how wonderful this is. The lemon essence is strong without being overwhelming and there is no sour lemon taste. I do get a slightly bitter finish when tasting this plain, but it's not noticeable to me in use on food (I am very sensitive to bitter flavors). I made a sensational dressing using only a bit of this mixed with their regular evoo and it had plenty of the lemon evoo taste, so it doesn't take much to get the flavor and can be stretched, if you want. I readily recommend this and the plain evoo. I am buying the full size as soon as possible.
I liked the vinegar but it is not balsamic. I t is a nice re wine vinegar. You should clarify this in your ads.
Also, where is the DOP on your olive oil. It would help to know that the olive oil will be of consistent quality.
