Our estate grown olive oil is an Italian Tuscan blend of Maurino, Leccino, Frontoio, and Santa Caterina olives.
Olives are an alternating year crop. The 2021 crop was harvested the first week of November 2021. It takes a few months for the oil to settle and clarify. While we are waiting for this we are making our 2021 Olio Nuovo (New Oil) available for purchase. This is the freshest kind of olive oil that can be tasted. It should be consumed within a few months.
Many of our curbside and mail order customers have been including one or two bottles of olive oil to fill out a case order. We have been getting great feedback from aficionados both within California and throughout the country regarding the oil quality, and we concur – it’s really good with just fresh bread or for adding a deeper flavor profile to seared vegetables, egg dishes, etc.
