First, try one of their flavored olive oils that are on the savory side. You’ll want to pick up a bottle of their black truffle extra virgin olive oil, which would be delicious over fresh risotto, gourmet pasta or mashed potatoes. The Napa Valley Olive Oil Manufacturing Company’s oils are all extra virgin, which is the highest grade and least processed.
Then, move on to the sweeter and zestier side of Napa Valley Olive Oil Company’s flavored oils with the blood orange olive oil. This is great drizzled over some fresh mozzarella cheese or a wedge of Italian bread. Consider taking a bottle home to use the next time you prepare seafood. Pour a bit of the olive oil on as you saute the seafood or drizzle just before serving.
Next, check out Napa Valley Olive Oil Company’s rich, aroma filled, and flavored Balsamic vinegar. Their Sicilian lemon white balsamic vinegar is a perfect substitute for freshly squeezed lemon juice and is delicious on any fresh fish such as salmon. This vinegar is the perfect addition to your homemade vinaigrette. It mixes well in a mixed green salad, on sliced tomatoes, or even on a piece of roasted pork. The aged raspberry balsamic vinegar is another great choice because it’s a perfect blend of rich, dark, and sweet flavors that go great with fresh fruit and ice cream. It can also be used as a marinade for poultry.
A great way to absorb Napa Valley’s landscapes is to partake in a picnic at their many wineries, and what better to have at your picnic than imported meats from the Napa Valley Olive Oil Company? Their selection includes the popular giant Italian salami, sausage, prosciutto, various cheeses, and of course an enormous selection of olives. These authentic and locally produced products can go well with your wine for an even richer experience.
At the Napa Valley Olive Oil Manufacturing Company, you can sample as many olive oils as you like and “talk shop,” with the owners. Ask the experts, the owners themselves, about their products and their suggestions for the best use of their olive oils and vinegar. Visit the downtown Napa location or the original store in St. Helena. Either way, we’re sure your experience will be memorable and delicious!
