Vina Esperanza - Vibrant, Green, Pungent

Varietal(s): Italian and Spanish
Appellation: Calistoga
Harvest & Press Date: Nov 8 & 10, 2021

After two weeks of start and stop picks to avoid the rain, mornings in work boots and sweaters and beanies, and countless hours coordinating changes with the press and harvest crews, our 2021 harvest came to a close on a new beginning. Our first harvest of Viña Esperanza. 

This new-to-us orchard is located on Bennet Lane, just north of our home in Calistoga. Last spring, Emily was riding her bike and noticed a small pruning team tending to a row of young olive trees that lined the road. She stopped off to chat with Druseley, the pruning lead, and so the seed was planted for the 2021 harvest. Since that day we've spent a few afternoons in the orchard with Druseley and with the DeKoven's, the owners of Viña Esperanza, watching as the trees completed their annual cycle from bloom to fruit set through to our first harvest. The result is our biggest oil from the 2021 harvest ~ vibrant, green and bright.

Double H Ranch - Smooth, Buttery, Artichoke

We kicked off our 2021 harvest at the Harter property in Oakville. Our family first partnered with Dennis & Sharon Harter nearly a decade ago to produce Double H Ranch extra virgin olive oil, so we were honored to join them for our first pick after a year without Napa Valley olives.

On a fog filled morning last fall, after days of steady rain, we joined Dennis to sort through tubs of olives while his picking team hand harvested throughout the property. The result is a deliciously soft oil ~ smooth and buttery with hints of artichoke.
