Ultra Premium Quality Single Varietal Extra Virgin Olive Oils

Make your favorite dish more appealing and enhance its natural flavors with our single varietal olive oils. Each of our single varietal “Extra Virgin” olive oils originates from a single olive cultivar grown by family-owned farms and estates located throughout California. Each olive oil is “first cold-pressed.” This means that no chemicals or heat is used to extract the olive oil, and only the oil derived from the first mechanical pressing is used.
This process helps preserve the antioxidants and healthy fats often attributed to fresh Extra Virgin olive oil. Each of our single varietals can be categorized as delicate, mild or robust. Each olive oil is certified “Extra Virgin” by the California Olive Oil Council (COOC).
*The COOC standards for the sought after Extra Virgin grade are stricter than those of the International Olive Oil Council (IOOC), which regulates only some of the imported oils. In addition to strict chemical standards, each California olive oil must also pass the standards of an independent taste panel before it can be eligible to use the COOC certification seal.

Taste the Secolari Difference

The different flavors of our single variety oils are brought about by their differences in the level of ripeness and bitterness. They also vary in their levels of pungency, giving them a bitey or smooth taste. Here are the typical characteristics of our olive oil varieties:
  • Arbequina: The oil is clean, fresh, and herbal with sweet, notes of apple, artichoke undertones, and sweet. It’s perfect for sauteing or grilling BBQ, fish, chicken, vegetables as well as soups and sauces.
  • Ascolano: Delicate extra virgin oil is herbaceous and floral with slight grassy notes, apricot flavor, and bitter finish. It has a mild to medium pungency for a long-lasting pleasant-tasting finish.
  • Arbosana: This oil comes with a robust nutty taste with some peppery undertones. It’s the perfect substitute for cooking oil.
  • Koroneiki: This extra virgin olive oil is loved for its grassy flavor and piquant spiciness. It’s perfect for hearty soups, potatoes, bean dishes, dips, salsas, and pasta sauces.
