           There is a peaceful olive grove near the medieval town of Assisi in the beautiful province of Umbria, Italy.Umbria The soil beneath the grove is rich in minerals, and produces some of the world's finest olives. A bottle of this pure extra virgin olive oil pressed from these olives is available to you as a free gift and for purchase at Columbus Park Trattoria (see end of email).


            The Marchetti family, owners and proprietors of Columbus Park Trattoria, are also the owners of that peaceful olive grove in Assisi. They know that olive oil is a key ingredient in the finest Italian food, and they insist on using only the best extra virgin olive oil to enhance nearly every dish they serve.     


            For this reason, they employ a full-time farmer to tend the trees, so that when the olives are perfectly ripened to a beautiful purple hue, they can be harvested and turned into a rich and fruity olive oil. Only the finest extra virgin olive oil is Bruschettaused at all three of the Marchetti restaurants for drizzling on bruschetta and fresh bufala mozzarella, as a simple yet elegant dip for a crusty piece of Italian bread or focaccia, and as an essential element of many of the restaurants' succulent and savory Italian dishes.


            The Marchetti olive oil is derived primarily from Ogliarolo and Coratina olives, with a few other varietals mixed in. Members of the family actually travel to Italy in November or December each year to participate in harvesting their olives with Antonio, their farmer.


            The olives are gathered by climbing on ladders

In the trees
and using a hand rake to comb each individual branch. They fall onto tarps wound around the base of each tree, and are then gathered up and poured carefully into burlap sacks. The sacks of olives are taken to a mill and crushed by two large granite mill stones.


            The olives go through additional machines for further pressing until the olive oil begins to break free from the olive paste. During this final process, three basic elements emerge: water, olive components and pure extra virgin olive oil, with all of its amazing health benefits. This olive oil is known as "cold press extra virgin" olive oil, because it isOil pouring out extracted simply by pressing.    


            However, the olive components are sold to oil refineries that extract the remaining oil using chemicals and very high temperatures. The olive oils derived from this secondary process are Bottle of extra...inoliveoildecidedly inferior, and lacking in taste and nutrients, and will never be served in Columbus Park Trattoria, Osteria Applausi in Old Greenwich, or Tarantino Restaurant in Westport.


        Come and experience the fruity, full bodied, flavorful private estate "cold press extra virgin" olive oil from our grove in Umbria. Its richness adds a flavor that no other ingredient can match.
