Inspired by my visits to local producers, I decided to punctuate all the remaining property adjacent to the vineyard with a Tuscan olive grove.
A LABOR OF LOVE
The design includes 5 Tuscan varieties, Leccino, Frantoio, Pendolino, Coratina and Maurino. At maturity each tree yields 30-50 pounds of fruit which is transported for cold processing by a local Italian mill. No pasteurization, filtering nor blending is ever considered. Perfusion olive oil is 100% organic and production is limited to 25-50 gallons annually.
Our fertile soil, the ideal sun exposure and good drainage has yielded an exceptional olive oil with a pungent nose and spicy, herbal flavors that has achieved the extra virgin certification (EVOO).
