NAPA VALLEY SELECT

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Our Napa Valley Select Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is stone crushed at our estate “frantoio” (Italian for olive mill). The traditional stone-milled method grinds the olives into a paste using large granite stones, minimizing temperature and mechanical damage to the oil.  Our oil is extracted from the paste using a state-of-the-art two-phase decanter.  Awarded the California Olive Oil Council’s gold medal, our multi-cultivar blend of Manzanillo, Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino olives has a distinctive flavor profile.

Certified by COOC and CCOF

Purchasing olive oil with the California Olive Oil Council (COOC) Seal means you are buying fresh, California-grown, 100% extra virgin olive oil — the healthiest and most delicious olive oil on the market today. The certification process includes two tests: lab analysis with parameters indicating careful handling and storage of the olives and the oil, and a blind taste test by certified tasters. Only after the oil has passed both tests does it earn the right to display the COOC Seal. California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) is a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)-accredited organic certifying agency and trade association, located in Santa Cruz, California. Formed in 1973, CCOF was the first organic certification entity in the United States.


PIERALISI STONE MILL

We are proud to have our own Pieralisi frantoio at our Mountain Estate. Pieralisi is one of the oldest family owned olive mill equipment factories in Italy, known for manufacturing the best “micro” mills (small production) for ultra premium oils. Processing olives as quickly as possible after harvest is a key step to producing high quality oil. The olives come off the trees and go straight to the mill, just a 2 minute tractor ride from the grove. Large Italian Alpine granite milling stones gently crush the olives, keeping the paste cool to preserve its integrity, resulting in an ultra premium olive oil.


LOW ACIDITY

The international standard fatty acid (oleic acid, specifically) level of extra virgin olive oil is .8%. The very best olive oils in the world have acidity levels of about .25% to .33% or about one half to one third lower than the standard. The Napa Valley Select Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil has an acidity level of .05%, which indicates an ultra premium olive oil (20 times below the standard). Our olives, our mill, and our mill master make it possible for us to achieve this very low acidity level.
