Calivirgin - Coldani Olive Ranch Acquires Lodi Olive Oil Company
Coldani Olive Ranch, a olive oil company based in Lodi California and producers of their Calivirgin line of olive oils, recently added local favorite Lodi Olive Oil Company to their portfolio.
Lodi Olive Oil Company has a line of award winning olive oils made with varietals sourced from the Lodi/Stockton area and was founded by Leonard Cicerello , Robert Pirie, and Henry Sanguinetti in 2004. A wine distributor, a farmer and a nurseryman created the perfect team to jumpstart a new company in an industry that was relatively new to the Lodi area. Today the Lodi Olive Oil brand is among local favorites with a great reputation.
“Acquiring the Lodi Olive Oil Company adds new varietals to our company as well as depth,” said Mike Coldani, Co-Owner and Olive Miller, Coldani Olive Ranch. “Our distribution channels nationwide will also allow us to place the Lodi Olive Oil brand on shelves throughout the U.S. instead of just here in California”
Coldani Olive Ranch is amid an exceptional 2014 year with their Calivirgin brand olive oils as some of the most awarded oils in the U.S. collecting 42 awards this year of which 19 were gold, 4 best of class, 1 best of show and a producer of the year award. “Lodi Olive Oil will be a compliment to our company and we see the transition going into this new harvest happening seamlessly,”
Lodi Olive Oil comes in a couple varietals; Ascolano and Frantoio, as well as a few blends. The current suggested retail prices range from $12 to $17 per 500ml bottle. For more information visit www.LodiOliveOil.com or call 209-210-3162.
