Certified Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Paso Robles California
Alta Cresta Olive Oil produces award winning extra virgin olive oil from olives grown in our estate olive orchard. Located on the warm sunny East side of Paso Robles California, we grow four Italian varietal olives that produce olive oils that are very aromatic, rich and flavorful, and have a peppery finish. All of our oils are Certified “extra virgin” by the California Olive Oil Council.
The olives are hand-picked in mid November and pressed within hours. The result is premium extra virgin olive oil with high polyphenol levels (antioxidants) and exceptionally low free acidity and peroxide levels.

Sustainable Farming Practices
We are focused on preserving good soil for the future by mulching our olive tree trimmings in the orchard and we do not use any harmful pesticides, herbicides, or chemicals of any kind. The orchard utilizes only drip irrigation and water is applied sparingly and only during the growing season, typically between April and October. If we receive rain during the growing season we adjust the irrigation accordingly.
