At Bella Grace Vineyards, our artisanal Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) offers both excellent flavor and numerous health benefits. And in fact, the health benefits are some of the many reasons we love growing olives and producing high-quality olive oil.
Just like our grapes, we want to honor the fruit we pick from our olive groves, so we choose to hand pick and follow a traditional cold-pressing method for oil extraction. This method ensures that the delicate and nuanced flavors of our olives are preserved in the oil. In addition, because this method of pressing does not involve any heat, all of the natural health benefits from the olive are gently extracted as the oil is produced. The end result is silky smooth, delicious and healthy EVOO of the finest quality and taste.
Without a doubt, one of the top health benefits of EVOO is that it is chock full of antioxidants, which reduce the risk of chronic diseases, fight oxidative stress, improve cardiovascular health and significantly reduce inflammation. In addition, EVOO is primarily made up of monounsaturated fat (also known as oleic acid), which reduces the risk of stroke and heart disease, and potentially has beneficial effects on genes linked to cancer.
Enjoying freshly drizzled olive oil on top of fresh bread, vegetables, meats and salads is a great way to ensure that your body is receiving these wonderful health benefits. Invite our handcrafted, artisanal Extra Virgin Olive Oil into your kitchen all year long to enrich your food and your body.
