Olive Oils

In the next few months hundreds of premium California olive oils will hit store shelves. Here are our favorites--unfiltered, rich and fruity:

Long Meadow Ranch
Its Napa Valley Select has a light straw color and mellow, nutty taste. Great with less fussy foods and salads.
$18 for 375ml

McEvoy Ranch
Certified organic from the Petaluma hills above San Fran. It's darker and tastes of toasted walnuts and fresh grass. A great all-purpose oil.
$24 for 375ml

Willow Creek Olive Ranch
Its Market Blend is buttery soft yet flavorful. An oil that goes with everything.
$10 for 750ml

Sonoma County oil that's bitter and peppery, with hints of artichoke, apple and fennel. Perfect on pasta and risotto.
$20 for 375ml

Storm Olive Ranch
From the eastern mountains above Napa, where rugged terrain makes the oil pungent and robust.
$20 for 375ml
