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.
.. he would only use nocellara del Belice olives, not only are they the sweetest but they boast 4-times the shelf life of other varieties. This is why Papa Vince is UNREFINED, UNFILTERED and completely RAW.
HOW TO USE PAPA VINCE EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE LEMON OIL
2018 - 2019 Harvest. Best Used before 11/2030. Use within 12 months of opening. Long duration due to high levels of antioxidants. No other oils processed in this facility besides extra virgin olive oil.
Papa Vince's Lemon Olive Oil is a harvested product. It tastes different every year.
My family grows, harvest and presses its own Extra Virgin Olive Oil since 1935 in Sicily, Italy.
As farmers, we are frustrated with a food industry that demands mediocrity to meet market demands. This is why we entered the market in 2013, to bring you the REAL EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL.
Papa Vince is a small family-owned business.
Our goal is to restore the joy of family and friends sitting around the table to enjoy an incredible meal - just like the ones Grandma used to make. Once you taste Papa Vince foods we are convinced you will become part of our family. It’s the Italian way – to make friends, with food around the table.
It's fantastic, first time trying it !
This olive oil is delicious! It is a beautiful color and has a wonderful taste I would describe it as a mild olive oil. The lemon scent is pure heaven. I have been using it to drizzle over eggs I know that's strange but it's really a good combination.
I also have used it over lightly poached fish, and I sauteed shrimp in it. FANTASTIC!!
I have not yet tried the regular olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
The 2018 harvest Extra Virgin Lemon Olive Oil is excellent.
