Like wine, olive oil’s quality and taste are influenced by geographic factors, the timing of harvest, types of varieties/cultivars, and the care of growers and producers.
Darioush has worked closely with several olive orchards in Yolo and Placer counties, California, to produce expressive and aromatic Extra Virgin olive oils. The 2019 Ascolano Olive Oil is smooth, mild and balanced with nuances of tomato leaf, ripe apple, and banana, and pairs beautifully with Darioush Chardonnay or your favorite white wine.
Ensure the perfect pour, a sophisticated table, and the preservation of fine oils with an elegant, double-walled glass carafe from Ichendorf Milano and a Darioush exclusive, raw-edged dipping dish in cobalt blue by local Napa Valley ceramacist, Lynn Mahon. Additionally, a set of two gold and white metalic-foiled linen napkins by designer Kim Seybert, evoking sunlight striking glass and give this collection organic cohesion.
