OLIVES & OLIVE OILS
We produce several varieties of olives at our ranch, including: Arbequina, Arbosana and Koroneiki. Our extra virgin, cold pressed oil is made from these olives grown in the Capay Valley. Using a special vine-grown system, we are able to harvest the olives quickly and rush them to the mill. The olives are harvested and crushed within hours to produce the freshest, most flavorful oil, rich in antioxidants‚Äî a cook‚Äôs ideal companion.
A Spanish varietal, this medium-bodied olive oil has a freshly cut grass-y flavor, floral undertones, and is great for salad dressing, cooking fish or dipping bread.
This full-bodied Greek varietal oil has a robust, peppery finish that makes the perfect finishing oil on signature dishes.
Also a Spanish varietal, this oil delivers a more robust, nutty flavor, that pairs well with everything from bruschetta to chocolate, and is great drizzled atop soups or steaks.
Chiquitita (pronounced Sikatita) is a fairly new and distinct cultivar
adapted for growing in high density orchards. The tree is a cross between the Spanish Picual and Arbequina, resulting in mild oil, sweet and delicate
Our fresh Arbequina olive oil is infused with a variety of fresh fruit and herbs. Great with seafood, fresh steamed vegetables or paired with balsamic vinegar for citrus-y or herbal vinaigrette. Currently we have Meyer Lemon Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Blood Orange Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Basil Infused Extra Olive Oil. But we are always experimenting. Check online for other oils as they become available.
In addition to our traditional Balsamic Vinegar, we sell three ‘infused’ flavored vinegars, which include Eldeberry, Cranberry and D’Anjou Pear flavors.
Our pure and natural honey is from honeybees that forage on the wildflowers growing in our tranquil Capay Valley foothills during the summer months. The richness of the local flora makes a darker honey with more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant properties.
