Before I get to the winner of the case of Honest Tea, I wanted to give you a little introduction for my next giveaway. As you know from my post on Saturday, I am celebrating Mediterranean Month with Oldways and the Mediterranean Foods Alliance. You may also know that one of THE most important elements in the Mediterranean diet, one that can lead to good health, great skin, beautiful hair, is olive oil. Olive oil is a very good fat that, when used in moderation as part of a healthy diet, can potentially lower risk of heart disease and certain types of cancers. Plus, good olive oil tastes great and is a satisfying addition to a meal!
I am SO excited that The Olive Press, with tasting locations in both the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, was willing to partner with me for a Med Month giveaway. Here is a little information about The Olive Press:
The Olive Press is the maker of America’s most Award-Winning Fresh California Extra-Virgin Olive Oil. Inspired by the olive pressing facilities in Italy and Southern France, Ed Stolman and Deborah Rogers, both olive growers and producers, opened a completely unique state-of-the-art production facility in Sonoma California, complete with an artisan gourmet gift shop and complimentary olive oil tasting bar. Dedicated to “all things olive” The Olive Press continually produces oils honored with accolades and awards from prestigious competitions both here in the U.S. and abroad.
The Olive Press was just recently awarded “Best of Class” “Best of Show” and “10 Gold Medals” at the prestigious 2010 Yolo County Fair Olive Oil Competition in April. Of the 10 Gold Medals, six of them were Extra-Virgin Olive Oil: Arbequina, Mission, Sevillano, Italian Blend, Marquesa and Lunigiana Estate Certified Organic. Four gold medals were awarded to Citrus Olive Oils: Blood Orange, Lime, Limonato and Jalapeno.
As you can see, The Olive Press’s high standards have paid off, resulting in award winning, extremely high quality products.
The Olive Press is offering one lucky Travel Eat Love reader a $30 gift certificate to their store which not only sells their olive oils but also offers vinegars, sauces and spreads, and spa products to name a few.
