A spectrum of four award-winning EVOOs created for food pairing from the world's best olive region.
When you peel away the marketing hype, extra virgin olive oil is simply cold pressed fruit juice. To make a great one, you need to have great olives and this year Istria has been named the world's best oil region for the second year running by Flos Olei, the bible of olive oils.
We've picked four of our favorite Istrian oils from the Belić family whose philosophy on olive oils is driven by food pairing. This combo pack gives you a great introduction to the beauty and complexity of great oils with the following in order of intensity:
97 points, Flos Olei 2015
Gold Medal, Olive Japan 2016
The Belić family from the town of Rabac in Istria, where they also run a mean food pairing tasting in their scenic olive grove.
These are oils of exceptional quality and are not meant for cooking, but instead for finishing a range of dishes. Drizzle a bit over your favorite vegetable, fish, meat or desserts and your tastebuds will thank you.
