Testimonials

The owners of IL Fiorello Olive Oil Company are mindful of olive oil quality and laws governing labeling. Each season they submit their oils for sensory evaluation by the Applied Sensory Olive Oil Taste Panel The certification seals on the bottles of IL Fiorello Olive Oil indicate that the oils harvested for the season have passed both chemical and sensory standards to be labeled as ” Extra Virgin.”The owners are also committed to educating their staff on olive oil quality and regularly send employees to the” Sensory Evaluation of Olive Oil Certificate Course” at the UC Davis Olive Center.

Sue Langstaff

Panel leader of the Applied Sensory Olive Oil Taste Panel and instructor for Sensory Evaluation of Olive Oil Certificate Course

Ann & Mark have been long-time supporters of UC Davis and the Olive Center from attending short courses, processing campus-grown olives, hosting students and visitors for tours to collaborating on USDA-funded projects on olive pomace. Their strong work ethics, passionate care for the environment, steady commitment to high standards & kind willingness to share their knowledge have inspired and helped many people around the world. I look forward to continuing our work together and supporting the sustainable growth of California olive oil industry.

“We have visited this location twice and had a great time both times. Great olive oil with good prices. Even local honey and other olive oil products. If you are so inclined they have a fixed lunch with local beers and wines too. And don’t miss their gelato, a delight for kids and adults alike.”
