2023 Fox Hill Extra Virgin Olive Oil
THE STORY: Following our inaugural olio nuovo release before the holidays, we are excited to share our limited extra virgin olive oil from Fox Hill Vineyard in Mendocino. The 100% extra virgin olive oil is made from a variety of organically grown olive trees that stretch along the border of Fox Hill Vineyard. The soils and climate at Fox Hill mimic the climate of Italy's Piedmont region, making it a welcoming place for olive trees to grow. The oil is made from 50% green unripe olives and 50% ripe black olives. Hand harvested by our very own friends and family early in the morning and cold-pressed the same day and left unfiltered. After pressing the olives in November, the oil was left to settle and develop for a couple months. The result is a smooth and elegant olive oil, with a fresh and balanced structure. Hand bottled and labeled with care.
This oil isn't for cooking with heat but instead is best used as a finishing olive oil for a variety of dishes, for dipping or for use in salads.
