Green Wins: La Poderina Toscana Extra Virgin Olive Oil

A notable review and Bruschetta recipe
Perfect with summer tomatoes

Another great review has been garnered for La Poderina Toscana Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The name is a mouthful, as we must add that it is a Seggianese monocultivar, organically certfied, and with the IGP Toscano designation.  You can see the review here.

The blogger is part of a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, and they appreciate the “GREEN” story of La Poderina Toscana IGP Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. They’ve taken the “green movement” to heart. The farm is organic and the energy for the pressing comes from photovoltaic energy cells. The farm uses biomass heating as well for hot water and to heat the farm house. We can’t think of another producer who so eliminated or reduced outside energy sources. (At Olio2go, we almost want to apologize for using an ocean-freighter to bring the oil to the U.S.)
