  • FAQ

    What makes San Giuliano different?
    For over a century, San Giuliano meticulously farms and produces EVOO from their estates located on the northwestern coast of the Italian blue-zone island of Sardinia, Italy. The focus will always be quality over quantity, resulting in distinctly delicious, antioxidant-rich EVOO.
    How does San Giuliano make EVOO?
    San Giuliano harvests at specific moments throughout the fall and winter seasons to obtain particular flavor profiles (the earlier the harvest, the less yield of oil, but more pronounced nuances in the olive fruit and higher content of polyphenols). The olives are then immediately cold-rinsed, cold-pressed; its pulp is separated from the juice using a natural process, and then the water by-product and olive pits are re-purposed to produce biofuel and skincare products.
    The oil is then stored in climate-controlled stainless steel tanks for bottling on-demand.
    What makes EVOO so great?
    EVOO brings a complex harmony of flavor and texture to foods while being a highly versatile staple in the cooking and seasoning of countless cuisines. At the core of the Mediterranean diet, olive oil has been around for over 4,000 years. EVOO also delivers monosaturated "good" fats, vitamins, and powerful micronutrients to the cardiovascular system.
    Can you cook or fry with EVOO?
    Yes. EVOO has a smoke point of up to 410 Fahrenheit / 210 Celcius. Studies show that when sautéing with extra virgin olive oil, the bioactive compounds from foods like tomatoes, onions, and garlic migrate to the oil and are absorbed in greater amounts by the body.
    How nutritious is extra virgin olive oil?
    EVOO contains micronutrients, vitamins A &K, and is high in monosaturated fatty acids (and when substituted for monounsaturated fats, helps lower "bad" LDL cholesterol). The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of olive oil add benefits beyond cholesterol lowering.
