The Napa-based Food & Vine, Inc. landed a coveted spot on Oprah Winfrey’s annual list of favorite things when she included their Salute Santé grapeseed oil pantry as a top choice for 2016. The collection comprises a half-liter can of the original grapeseed oil plus one bottle each of the specialty merlot, chardonnay, roast garlic, basil, and lemon extra virgin cold-pressed grapeseed oils.
“Sorry, olive oil, you’ve been a good friend but I’ve moved on,” Winfrey said about the Salute Santé product. “Pure grapeseed oil is great for cooking and has no cholesterol, no sodium, no preservatives and no trans-fatty acids. All those ‘no’s’ add up to a very big ‘yes.’.”
Valued at $90, the gift set includes our 1/2 L can for cooking and salads, 2 cold pressed finishing oils – Chardonnay and Merlot, and 3 best-selling infused grapeseed oils – roasted garlic, basil and lemon – our liquid spice!
“We’re thrilled that Oprah chose Salute Santé grapeseed oil for this year’s list,” said Nanette Humer, who owns and runs the company with her husband, Valentin Humer, a European trained chef. The couple founded Food & Vine, Inc. in 1994 with the mission of bringing high-quality grapeseed oil to the American table.
