' SummitVine - Olive Oil
On a cold morning in November 2008, Susan and I naively set out with large buckets and rakes to pick the first fruit from our olive trees. It was a long and exhausting, yet very rewarding, day and so began the olive-picking chapter of our life at SummitVine Ranch. We did learn a lesson from that first harvest and are now helped by a team of family and friends, making for a fun, annual tradition.  The result of our labor is a high quality, rich, flavorful oil with the verdant characteristics of our land, exclusively labeled and bottled under our SummitVine brand.

SummitVine Olive Oil is a select blend of Italian varietals, Frantoio, Leccino, Maurino and Pendolino, with a dash of Spanish olives from our four 80-year-old Manzanillo trees. The oil captures the bright, natural essence of fresh olives. We use no pesticides or chemicals and press locally on an organic press. Quantities are limited, and each bottling is vintage-dated to ensure freshness. SummitVine olive oil can be drizzled on savory Mediterranean foods, mixed with garlic and fresh herbs for a delicious dipping oil, or tossed with your favorite salad. It always makes a wonderful culinary gift for friends and family.

The perennial beauty of these olive trees, together with the arduous but rewarding olive harvest, makes producing this special oil truly gratifying. We are delighted to share the fruits of our labor with you and hope you enjoy this wonderful olive oil as much as we do!
