Belice Valley Importing is devoted to producing high-quality olive oil from our family to yours. We are involved in all production phases, and we have been there every step of the way – from when the olives are still on the trees until it is in the bottle. Our olive oil has been in our homes for many years, yet we have only been in commercial production since 2014.
If you are looking for Italian Olive Oil, well Belice Valley Importing is the place for you! These two unique Italian olive oils are as authentic as they come. Everything from growing the respective olives to manufacturing each olive oil is a family affair. At Belice Valley Importing, we have a limited amount of Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced by the extended Bivona family of Gibellina, Sicily and Waco, Texas.
What makes us unique? Our product is an extension of ourselves, so we are devoted to the extra time and cost of producing a quality product. While many Italian olive oils tend to cut corners to save on the cost of production, we pride ourselves on our honesty and standards. You will not have to worry about getting a tainted product when you purchase either variety of olive oil we offer. With questions in the media these days regarding the origins and quality of products designated as Italian extra virgin olive oil, Belice Valley Importing provides the security of an importer who knows the growers and individuals overseeing the pressing and bottling of the oil.
Our Bivona olive oil is a certified organic olive oil produced from the trees on our own land and those of neighboring families. It is made with Cerasuola olives from near Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily. In contrast to our Aremi oil, this oil is robust and earthy. It is a delightful-tasting oil with complete security regarding content and origin.
Aremi olive oil is derived from Nocellara del Belice olives. It gives a slightly spicy burst while keeping a very delicate, light flavor on the palate. The olives are grown in the Belice River Valley, in Sicily on the lands that have been in the Bivona family for generations. The land is near the ruins of Gibellina, Salaparuta, and Poggioreale and a few miles upstream from the ancient Greek temples at Selinunte.
