As the weather turns, the olive harvest or raccolto begins. A seasonal gift of nature - from the fruit to the bottle, from the land to the artisan's hands, from generational producers, from us to you.
2022 New Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Tenuta di Capezzana
Bursting with the peppery, fruity flavor of fresh olives with that classic "Tuscan zing" this oil is a near perfect balance of fruit and spice with a bright golden green color and a delicate fruity aroma. High in polyphenols and protective antioxidants beneficial to heart health, Capezzana extra virgin olive oil comes from the organically tended olive groves on the estate farm of the Contini-Bonacossi family in Camignano, NW of Florence that has been producing olive oil since the year 804.
Estate farm oil is made from olives that have been grown, harvested, and bottled at the source, ensuring the highest possible quality. Rich in aromas typical of the region, there is a one to one relationship between the ancient tree stock and the oil - the olives from one tree make one bottle of oil. It's as if each bottle of oil was made especially for you. Fresh, high quality, genuine extra-virgin olive oil with the coveted D.O.P. seal, a designation conferred by the European Union that guarantees its quality, geographical origin, producer, the variety of olive used, date of production and other details that distinguishes it from other oils.
Our partners in Tuscany take great care with their small batch production with a limited supply of oil available outside of Italy. In most years the first of the new harvest extra virgin olive oils arrives just after Thanksgiving. For the 2022 harvest, we anticipate some delays due to harvest conditions and the continuing challenges of the worldwide supply chain.
For the past 23 years Tenuta di Capezzana has been our signature oil and like many of you we look forward to the new harvest. As production and supply chain issues have effected this year's harvest, we will be accepting pre-orders for this oil.

We will queue your request and contact you with product availability and expected shipping dates later this year with anticipated deliveries in January or February.
