It's time to pick up some new extra virgin oliveoil!
Available now at our markets are some of the healthiest, best-tasting oliveoils on earth! How do we know? Well, we're produce experts, and olives are fruit! Just as with other fresh produce, olives have seasons. Sigona’s believes when it comes to high quality oliveoil, fresher is always better!
The olives grown in the Northern Hemisphere are harvested from about November until early in the new year, while olives grown in the Southern Hemisphere are harvested from about May through June. We purchase extraordinary examples of fresh pressed oliveoils from around the world, following the seasons, to ensure we have the freshest, healthiest oils available.
Did you know that olives pressed more than nine to 12 months ago have started to lose their integrity? Some have even begun to turn rancid. Old oils lose their excellent health properties and can actually be more detrimental than beneficial to one's health.
Sigona’s offers the highest quality, single-cultivar oils around, many of them gold medal winners that are impossible to duplicate in the traditional market place! The oils we we bring in are made from olives that were cold pressed within 2 to 4 hours of harvest. Now that's fresh!
