Currently, we have more than 200 Spanish and Italian olive trees planted on our hillside groves near our vineyards. During harvest, we pick all the trees together and then combine the olives into a single batch, which produces a field blend of wonderful oil. The Spanish varietals deliver a rich golden oil, and the Italian varietals bring a green grassy youth to the oil. There is a slight herbaceous spice with a light pepper tickle on the back of the palate. While you may want to cook with our oil we highly suggest that you only use it for dipping and salads. Heat will affect the wonderful flavors and aromatics.
