Our Olive Oil
The Extra Virgin Olive Oils produced at Alta Cresta Olive Orchard are made exclusively from our estate grown Italian olive varietals. Tuscan varietals: Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino and southern Italian Coratina make up our orchard.
The olives are hand-picked in mid November and pressed within 24 hours. The result is premium extra virgin olive oil with exceptionally low free acidity and peroxide levels.
Our November 2015 olive harvest olive oils have been Certified ‘Extra Virgin’ by the California Olive Oil Council.
All three (Tuscan Blend, Italian Blend and Coratina) are at their freshest and full of olive fruit flavor. Visit our Olive Oil Store to purchase our Premium EVOO. You may also visit the orchard to purchase oil directly from us.
