Columela extra virgin olive oil is made with a blend of hojiblanca, picual, arbequina and ocal olives. This unique combination of olives sets their oil apart from most other options. Their 100% extra virgin olive oil is also made by piercing the olives instead of pressing them. This more delicate process results in a more intensely aromatic oil. You can use it as a cooking oil in virtually any Mediterranean recipe. Or drizzle it over salads, pizzas, pasta dishes, and sandwiches. With high amounts of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, adding olive oil to your diet can result in real health benefits. It's also a good source of both Vitamin E and Vitamin K.
Tangy Sherry Vinegar
Sherry vinegar is similar to balsamic, balancing sweet and acidic flavor notes. Made the traditional way by aging grapes in the sun, this DOP vinegar's authenticity is guaranteed. This tangy, syrupy vinegar is great for preparing sauces, marinades, and salad dressings. Columela also offers a 30-year aged sherry vinegar with a deep flavor and a somewhat nutty quality. Aged in oak barrels, this aged sherry makes a thoughtful addition to a Mediterranean or Spanish gift basket.
A Burst of Flavor for Any Dish
