All of the olives for our KATZ Rock Hill Ranch organic extra virgin olive oil are grown in the Suisun Valley, which flanks the Napa Valley. Rock Hill Ranch has ideal soils for growing olives. The hills surrounding the valley are full of compacted volcanic ash called tuffo, in Italian. Our olives are certified organic and grown using sustainable farming practices. The olives are handpicked and cold pressed by a Jesuit Monk who has made it his 'mission' to mill the best oils under pristine conditions.
Rock Hill Ranch Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains these olive varieties: Taggiasca and Casaliva - (90%), these cultivars are native to the Ligurian and Lombardy regions of Italy respectively. Both are known for their soft and persistent fruitiness with sweet overtones producing a lush mouth feel. Allegra - (10%), a newer early ripening Italian variety that produces a fruity oil with mild pungency.
The weather was ideal in the 2012 harvest season, finally, with warm summer days and cool nights. It has amazingly fragrant 'green' notes in the aroma and taste...from artichoke, to green almond and fresh herbs. The mouth feel is in balance with a rich, lush profile and with a pleasantly pungent finish...all reflecting the 'freshness' of the new harvest. Rock Hill Ranch was the winner of 2011 Yolo County Fair Best in Show:Organic Olive Oils, and the Patty Bogle-Roncoroni Award (Best of the Best).
