The snowy loading dock at Olio2go’s World Headquarters.

After the big weekend snowstorm, we braved the snow and ice to pack holiday gifts at Olio2go. You can bet that the UPS driver was not amused when he could not reach our loading dock. But, somehow, all of the orders that came in through the weekend snowstorm made it out on Monday.  It’s been a great holiday season with Da Vinci Crude (sold out), Azienda del Carmine Sampler Gift Set (just a few remaining), Towers of Tuscany (sold out), the Manicardi Gift Set, and of course, the Novello olive oil selections, including Tenuta di Capezzana and Olio Verde.

Check out the Young & Hungry Blog at the Washington City Paper for a story and video on the new olive oil harvest. The video reveals the path from tree to bottle for another extra virgin olive oil. It is always a treat to see bright milky green freshly pressed olive oil. Olio2go is mentioned as a local internet retailer, and we’re in darn good company! Writer Jim Shahin is a big fan of Olio Verde and Capezzana Novello oils. Enjoy the Novello season!
