The rolling hills of the Shenandoah Valley is the ideal location for olives, as well as wine. The climate here in the Sierra Foothills is quite similar to that of Tuscany, and our 200+ olive trees thrive in this Mediterranean climate. Our trees are cared for by our fabulous vineyard crew and olives are handpicked in the Italian tradition at just the peak of ripeness. Our winemaker directs the blending to create a luscious field blend that brings out the best in the oil. End result? Bliss; pure bliss.

Our 100% estate-grown extra virgin olive oil is perfect for salads, a dip for breads or in many recipes.

For you foodies and those that are curious, here are the types of olives and the reasons why you will find them in our oil. Enjoy!
