The All Things Olive Difference
Olive oil is a slippery world, with little federal or state oversight.
Knowing whether or not your olive oil is really extra virgin begins with knowing who really made it.
You'll know at All Things Olive.
Each bottle we sell has been labeled by the family farm in Northern California that produced it.
Come taste why real, fresh extra virgin olive oil is such a rare treat.
Olio Nuovo is Here!

On the Road with All Things Olive
On a recent trip to Slovenia we had the fun opportunity to do a tasting and tour of the Lisjak Olive Oil company in Koper.
Lisjak grows olive varieties indigenous to the Istrian peninsula, such as bjelica, buža and karbonera. They also use a state-of-the-art mill, including the 'racking' tanks pictured below, where the freshly pressed olive oil is allowed to rest for a couple of months before bottling.
Lisjak's oils are prized by local chefs and gourmets alike.

Albert Katz, KATZ FARM
Napa Valley/Suisun Valley, CA
Albert Katz’s favorite place on earth is in the middle of his olive groves where it is peacefully serene, and the shade of the trees keeps the air cool. It all started after moving with his family to the Napa Valley in 1993, and having a fortuitous meeting with a newly forming group trying to grow olive trees that eventually led to the founding of the California Olive Oil Council. Thus began a 23+ journey of discovery of how to grow and farm olive trees, and how to produce authentic, world-class extra virgin olive oil.
Now all these years later, KATZ has garnered 35+ gold medals and 4 Best of Show awards for their organic, estate-grown extra virgin olive oils. Albert, and his wife Kim, remain committed to continuing their support of the evolving sustainable food movement in this country, and to their own organic farming practices through good stewardship of their groves in the Suisun Valley just a few miles east of their home in Napa.
