This extra virgin olive oil is a treat in itself. You may want to use it for cooking (see our recipes) and salad dressings, but the best way to savor it is to eat it on a piece of good bread. A staple of the healthy Mediterranean diet, olive oil is incomparably flavorful and also very rich in monounsaturated fats.

Alziari olive oil is made by cold pressing of ripe olives from selected groves. Alziari was founded in Nice more than 130 years ago. Its olive oil mill, constructed in 1868, is today the only one in activity in Nice. This family business has preserved its tradition of quality and its well-deserved reputation over five generations.

    I love this extra virgin olive oil. It is fruity, spicy and loaded with flavor. Great for dipping rustic bread.

    I have been "hauling" Alziari huile d'olive (and their soap) back to the States since 1974.The joke in their wonderful shop has been "how will the plane get off the ground?" Their shop is filled with barrels of different olives in tantalizing marinades, hand made olive wood products, massive bars of olive oil based soaps with enchanting aromas and other related goodies. The back walls are lined with huge vats of olive oil - the locals come with their own containers to have them refilled. My husband's dear "Tonton" insisted on taking me to the Alziari mill when he realized my obsession with their oil - a most cherished memory! Clearly I'm biased; but I got there honestly - I had been trying different brands from different countries for quite a while, before I entered their shop (with no knowledge then of their history). At that time, when I tasted it there was just no comparison with what I had previously experienced.The aroma was intoxicating, its flavor fruity, mellow and delicious. There are some dishes I make, where it is Alziari's olive oil that makes the dish! When we have group dinners, I am always asked to bring the salad because of my dressing; I've been asked just for the dressing which pleases me no end to share this wonderful product. It's great to know I can get it here now if my supply dwindles. For me, it is a luxurious staple in my kitchen - I wish that it was available for all.
