Why we love it
Too often olive oil or extra virgin olive oil is seen as only one, without any consideration on the producer or the provenance or the olive variety, assuming they all taste the same: it could not be more wrong.
We have designed a map listing all Italian native olive varieties cultivated across Italy, olive oil can be as fascinating as wine when looked at considering region, variety and producer, with differences and with each and every oil better suited for a specific use, from light delicate oils to more rich olive oils.
This Italian native olive varieties map is perfect for people who love cooking and wants to know more about the provenance of the ingredients used. The map measure 18x24
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 living 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 producers: Italyabroad.com’s mission is to discover and import Italian gems from small, little known, yet dedicated, Italian wineries and food producers.
All products we import are 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 do not import industrial or poor quality products, we believe in a healthy living and eating and drinking well is part of the Mediterranean diet.
Since starting in 2003 Italyabroad.com has won several awards, especially for its wines, from best newcomer from the UK Sommelier Association to UK's people wine Award.
