Too often extra virgin olive oil is seen as one, without any consideration on the producer or the provenance or the olive variety, assuming they all taste the same: this assumption could not be more wrong.
Our map list all Italian native olive varieties cultivated across Italy. Extra virgin olive oil can be as fascinating as wine when looked at properly, when taking into account region, variety and producer, with each oil having its own characteristics, from light and delicate to rich, and each oil and variety better suited for a specific food.
This Italian native olive varieties map is perfect for people who love cooking and wants to know more about the provenance of the ingredients, in this case Italian extra virgin olive oil. The map is available as a PDF or a poster measuring 61x91cm. If ordering the PDF version, the file has a high resolution and can be printed in any size.
The artisan who made it
Italyabroad.com was founded in 2003 in response to a lack of quality Italian wine and food. As soon as Andrea (the founder) landed in the UK noticed that Italian products available were not the ones he was used to when grwoing up in Italy.
From wine to food, Andrea could not find the quality he was used to and coming from a wine making family, he decided to embark in a journey to source quality Italian wine and food from small Italian, artisan producers: Italyabroad.com’s mission is to discover and import Italian gems from small, little known, yet dedicated, Italian wineries and artisans.
All our products are authentic and of the highest quality and made using the best, natural ingredients and respecting the environment; none of our product contains palm oil or preservatives, we believe in a healthy living and eating and drinking well is essential for a long and healthy life. We do not import industrially made products or so called "Italian sounding" food.
Since starting in 2003, Italyabroad.com has been the recipient of several awards.
