I’m really proud of my team here at Lunds and Byerly’s. Because of their hard work and expertise, Lunds and Byerly’s is the first retailer in the United States to have the first batch of Monini Monello olive oil. We succeeded in securing the first 100 cases out of Italy for the 2011-2012 harvest.
What makes this exclusive shipment of Monini olive oil so special is that it’s made from the first pressing of the fall harvest, giving it a unique taste you can only find from the first pick of the season. Many view this as Monini’s finest product because it’s bottled immediately after the first harvest to capture the extreme flavor and aroma of fresh squeezed olives.
