What to Look For in: Olive Oil

1. Always look for olive oil in a dark tinted bottle. Light and heat can be very harmful and spoil the oil.
2. Make sure that the bottle has a label “Extra-Virgin” somewhere on it. This basically means that the olives were cold-pressed rather than pressed with heat which makes the oil lose flavor.
3. Harvest dates are really important. Olive oil does expire so it is always good to purchase wine with harvest dates within the last few months.
4. If possible, find oils that state the country of harvest. Many times even if it says “Product of Italy” it may just mean that it was bottled in Italy.
