In a cool, dry place. Olive oil will lose its unique flavors in a fairly short time. It's not wine. Figure shelf life of one year.

If it is fresh--i.e. made this past fall, don't store it! Use it now!

If you are curious at all, look for the letters DOC or DOP on the lable. That indicates denomination of origin. In other words it is not blended with other oils from outside Puglia.
