Farmers pick the best olives from the olive trees through a careful process, then transport the harvest directly to the nearest mill. Extra virgin olive oils undergo natural cold-pressing and pass rigorous quality tests.
At Bertolli, they receive oil samples from all over the world to select the highest quality oils: they evaluate and assess its sensory characteristics through internal tasters, olive oil sommeliers … and then repeat the quality testing process multiple times throughout the entire production. To obtain a high quality olive oil, rich in flavors and nuances and to satisfy all types of palates, the Bertolli master blender takes special care to create a superior oil within each bottle.
It’s a long process, but no one said that being a high quality oil brand was easy.
The beginning of Bertolli:
Bertolli was founded in the Tuscan city of Lucca in 1865. Francesco Bertolli, and his wife Caterina, opened a small grocery store beneath their home, selling only the best quality regional wines, cheeses, olives and olive oil. Ten years after the small grocery store opened its doors, Francesco started sending boxes of his famous olive oil to America, meeting the demand of Italian emigrants. Bertolli Olive Oil became the first olive oil exporter of the world. With a passion for the traditions and flavors of the Tuscan lifestyle, Francesco Bertolli believed that fresh natural ingredients, prepared in all their simplicity is the essence of great tasting food. More than 150 years later, Bertolli continues to provide quality, authentic flavors to more than 40 countries and is the world’s most sold olive oil brand.
