About Calivirgin/Lodi Olive Oil Company:
Coldani Olive Ranch is a true "Family Business". The entire family handles every aspect from tree to bottle. Growing the olives, processing them into oil, bottling, packaging design, marketing, sales and shipping are just a few of the tasks the family takes on together. All of their extra virgin olive oil is estate grown; no pesticides are used and each product is organically and sustainably produced from the family owned and operated farm. The Calivirgin olive oils have consistently medaled in all of the national competitions making them one of the most awarded companies in the nation; popular for their fresh, aromatic, fruity flavor that is perfect for dipping but mild enough to use as a culinary staple in your kitchen. Each flavored olive oil has been milled the exact same way as their premium extra virgin olive oil, except they have been crushed together with fresh produce/herbs. The result is a naturally flavored oil with no additives or preservatives.
All of the Extra Virgin Olive Oils from Coldani has been Seal-Certified by the California Olive Oil Council (COOC). A Seal-Certified olive oil offers the highest standard of quality to American consumers with positive taste elements, no taste defects, and less than .5% free oleic acid, as determined during a blind tasting by a qualified panel of experts. Seal-Certified olive oil also comes from olives that are mechanically extracted without chemicals or excessive heat. As stated by the COOC, “Trust the Seal - Your Extra Virgin Guarantee.” Any oil that does not bear the seal has no guarantee that it has been tested to meet any standards at all as there is currently no mandatory testing for quality of olive oil sold in the United States.
