When we first started selling Italian Pesto and pasta sauces in the UK, a decent olive oil was pretty hard to come by. Vinegar was something you put on chips, not drizzled over salads or fruit. Now there’s almost the opposite problem: too much choice.

So how do you know which one to get? A gift for a discerning foodie should be something special. Artisan-made. Handpicked. Cold-pressed. An ordinary mass-produced oil or vinegar just won’t cut it.

With our curated selection, we’ve found some of the best cold-pressed extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars of Modena. We scoured every region of Italy looking for the best products to bring back to you. Browse our range of unique gifts for any food lover.
