Our ‘Vorroni’ extra virgin olive oil has been updated with an eye-catching new design. The striking and elegant bottle looks beautiful anywhere from the retailer’s shelves, to the kitchen pass, to the dining table. But enough about what it looks like, what about what’s inside the bottle? Read on…

The producers
Vorroni extra virgin olive oil is harvested and bottled by independent producers in the heart of the Sabine hills, near Rome in Italy. We pride ourselves on only sourcing olive oil from small, independent producers. We believe that small producers are the driving force behind a healthy and sustainable agricultural economy. We are also small producers ourselves. This means that with generations of experience in olive oil production behind us,  we understand about the production of the olive oil – and most importantly –  how to obtain the highest quality oil. 

The olive groves
Vorroni is the name given by the locals to a peaceful valley, located in the heart of the Sabine hills- a mountain chain that runs through an area known as ‘Sabina’ – 40km North East of Rome. It is from this area, that the Romans used to source their olive oil, two thousand years ago. The olive groves are located at an altitude of around 1,900 ft (600 metres), with the rocky, limestone terrain creating excellent drainage for the olive trees. This is important because ‘thirsty’ trees create a greater intensity of flavour in the fruit. 

Olive varietals
A carefully considered balance of Carboncella and Leccino olives.

Tasting notes
Well-balanced, slightly peppery oil with notes of almond, watercress and artichoke.

I use this at home and in all my restaurants. It’s smooth, intense and slightly peppery – perfect on salads, for cooking or just on fresh bread.

It has amazing flavour so makes a great finishing oil… it is mellow, well balanced, slightly peppery, not too bitter.
