  1. Last summer in Nice we had the chance to have a guided tour of Alziari with one of the 2 brothers that owns it. What a chance ! One of my questions was where can I buy it in Canada and the awnser was very sad for me and you. They do not export in Canada. So or you have a friend that will bring you the precious oil or as me you will go next summer to make a little provision ...

    1. French Olive Oils are not well represented in Montreal ( or not to the same extent as Italian,Spanish and Portugese ) I used to spend 3 weeks a year on the Cote D'azur on business and each year used to bring back 5L of Oil from a small producer near Eze.I became very acustomed to the unique taste of French Oils. Last week I was at the Olive Oil Store in JTM and tried a French Oil from Lanquedoc producers Pierre & Rock Vialla.It had that taste I had been missing for the last couple of years.Its not Alziari but real good for what you can buy in Montreal from the south of France.

        Still looking.....I think they would welcome a distributor here. I just can't find anything that compares to its fruitiness and lightness.
