To ensure you have the freshest EVOO, it is best to buy olive oil produced from the most recent harvest (so the previous fall — if it’s coming from the same hemisphere — which often isn’t available to consumers until the following new year). That said, many bottles will not state a harvest date, but rather only an expiration date, which can be misleading. That’s why it is best to buy bottles that list a specific (and recent) harvest date, and why buying from experts ensures you’re getting not only the freshest but also the highest-quality extra virgin olive oil.
