Free Shipping on orders $50+!
This exceptional 46th Parallel Blue Label single-variety (Casaliva) Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced based on the modern concept of maximizing the integrity level of every production stage in order to enhance the oil’s health benefits and appeal. The olives are grown only in select orchards, where they are harvested at peak early stages of maturity. While olives typically do not grow anywhere above the 45th parallel, the warm winds that blow over Lake Garda create a micro-climate that produces some of the most superior olives in world! This is known as the “lake effect” and adds nuance and character to the oil’s profile. Flos Olei, the definitive guide to rating EVOO, gave 46 Parallel Blue EVOO a 98 out of a possible 99 score!

Meet The Makers
Agraria Riva del Garda won over Randall's heart and stomach at a blind tasting of 100+ EVOOs at Vinitaly. It is not logical that superior EVOO could come from Lake Garda because of how far north it is. However, the soft breezes coming from the south get trapped by the edges of the Dolomite mountains and create an ideal micro-climate.View The Profile
