I personally haven’t been there yet, but some good friends of mine are well connected with the Fasola family. I have tried their Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which is bottled with only the first cold pressing so that the oil is truly special. This is the reason why it’s called “liquid gold.”
They produce regular and flavored EVO, and you can buy bottles of 16.9 fl.oz., 8.4 fl.oz. or mini bottles of 0.6 fl.oz. and 0.3 fl.oz. The small size bottles are perfect for individual use at dinner parties or for gift baskets, etc
