Papa,
Lovely article!
I have alot of admiration for the way you are approaching this business. Your obvious respect for the olive farmers and bringing the best products for a reasonable price to boot to your clientele. I have been reading your posts for a while and I can tell you are very learned and worldly.We are indeed lucky to have you, your experience and opinions here at the Cheftalk Cafe. Forum.
Thanks for sharing .

Dear Friends:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read the article and for giving me your wonderful, heart warming comments!

In answering FoodIsMe's question, this is an old Italian expression. It translates to "fresh olive oil and old wine" and it is used to describe good quality. :)

Great article, Papa. I enjoyed it very much. Your photo made me think immediately of a jolly Zeus! You've really packed a lot of living into your years- I admire that.

Papa, thank you for the opportunity to learn more about what you do. It is truly a blessing to have you here!

BTW, I think that, along with the kindred spirit of your namesake, you also share the look.

What a wonderful article. I will never look at a bottle of olive oil the same way. Now I have a better understanding of your passion.

Papa-
Great story about you and your new business. I hope it's very successful-- sorry you had to leave the Pacific Northwest to do it.

Will you be offering these unique oils at retail on the internet? I hope that's a next step.
