Description

Itinerary

Take a guided tour of Suisun Valley’s local olive oil mill and certified organic farm. Begin with the history of making olive oil, and say a quick hello to the Chefs as they prepare for the day. Take in sweeping views from the patio, one of the best vantage points to survey the groves. Observe working organic and sustainable farming practices, and explore the groves where the olives are grown. Follow the olive’s journey as it enters the state-of-the art Italian mill to transform into olive oil. Learn the significance of the term “extra virgin”, and the misconception of “first cold press”.

Head back to the Visitor Center for a flight tasting of internationally-awarded olive oils and balsamic vinegar reductions. You’ll taste the oils individually, then expand your palate with our seasonal food pairings…no bread here! Instead, you’ll indulge in bites of mushroom risotto cakes, or fresh-picked cherry tomatoes and basil paired with olive oil. *Pairings rotate monthly and are based on seasonal availability. Please note on your reservation if you follow vegetarian/vegan/gluten free practices.

Tours are $35 per person, minimum of 2 people.  Add a wine flight for an additional $15.00 per person. Stay for a mid-day break with charcuterie and small bite appetizers, and wine or beer on the patio, or enjoy a cup of olive oil gelato as you relax in the Adirondack chairs. As you depart, stop by the retail shop to stock up on delicious olive oils, and other locally-made products like jams, mustards, soaps, lotions and more!

We learned so much about olive oil! The tasting flight was very eye opening and a lot of fun to do with friends. We were on vacation and had a great time when we stopped in here. I wish we had a place like this where we live.

First, I want to say that they have amazing employees, they are so warm and informative! I'm very glad I came here for my first olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting. The food pairing was a wonderful surprise and the gelato was delicious, unexpectedly with the olive oil on top. Seeing the plants and nature in the back was very therapeutic. I can't wait to come here again.

You definitely don't want to miss this hidden gem!!! My friends and I were lucky enough to receive a tour of the grounds from Mary, who is extremely knowledgeable of the entire olive oil industry and organic farming. It's absolutely incredible, everything served to us is made directly from their farm. Nothing goes to waste, from the skin of the olives to the food they feed to their chickens. It's truly something you don't see anymore!! Next, we had an unbelievable tasting with Gabe, who made the tasting a blast! Even if you've done an olive tasting before, this is a completely new experience. Come to find out, I have never bought REAL extra virgin olive oil!! From the minute you step in, you feel welcomed by the entire staff. You could spend the entire relaxing and playing games in the back terrace enjoying a glass or wine or beer (YES, THEY HAVE BEER!!) Truly not to be missed and is a great get away from the typical wine tour. Thanks again for welcoming us in!!

We neglected to book in advance, but they were able to accommodate us for a tour and tasting on short notice. It was a delightful tour, with two hours of personal service for our group of three -- a great value for the price. I think they lose money on the tours and make it back at the gift shop.
