    Default Olive Oil

    Where can I buy the best olive oil in Tuscany that I could bring to the US?

    The best would be if you go visit a farm or winery here in Tuscany and have the chance to taste the olive oil - then buy directly from them. You'll be assured of the highest quality at that point.

    Many small shops will also offer the possibility. I'd avoid getting some from the supermarket, just because at that point it generally is Italian olives and not Tuscan.

    Tuscan olive oil is great, but this year with the large amount of rain during the summer a great deal of the olives rotted on the trees. So supply is really short this fall, in case anyone is wondering why this fall's extra virgin olive oil is quite expensive :/. We are cutting our own consumption as it try to make what we had left from last year last as long as possible.
