What Makes Our Olive Oil Great?

Our Trees

In 2001 we planted our first field. We planted our second in 2003. Now, 1,800 trees are planted on the peaceful slopes of our farm in Sonoma County, California.

It was the nuns of the ancient Tuscan monastery of Valserena, considered to have the finest olive oil in the Cistercian Order of monks and nuns, who suggested this blend of olives to us. “Treat your olive trees like children,” the abbess directed. And we do. We pressed the first oil for ourselves in 2006.

Hand Harvested & Pressed On Site

Like all fresh fruits, olives must be treated gently. Friends, volunteers, and local employees help us pick the olives by hand – an old-fashioned, neighborly way to harvest.

Great olive oil should processed within a few hours. As baskets of fruit are brought in from the field, we begin pressing in the barn.

Our ability to keep our operation small, and on site, lowers our carbon footprint and impact on our planet. 

Heart-Healthy & Delicious

Loved by Mediterranean people for centuries, quality artisan olive oil is a new taste experience for many. Our gold-winning, robustly intense oil will enliven your salads and vegetables, wake up a Tuscan bean soup or minestrone, and make a magnificent pesto sauce for your pasta or pizzas!

Olive Oil is high in polyphenols, micronutrients, packed with antioxidants. Studies have shown that including Olive Oil in your diet can lower blood pressure, reduce risk of stroke and heart-disease, and increase brain functionality.
