It's Only A Matter of Wine


A while back, our expert Wine Buyer discovered L’Oliveto Chardonnay, an exceptional white wine from the one of the oldest vineyards in the famous Russian River Valley, in the heart of Sonoma, and then, most importantly, brought it back to you as a Foodie Find.

You can feel good about using it because NuCo’s Coconut Oil is made from certified organic coconuts grown in the Philippines using sustainable harvesting methods. And as a bonus the oil also stays liquid at room temperature, which means it is easy to pour.
