Description

Since the 1990s, Jordan Winery has strived to craft the best olive oil in Sonoma County, California, that honors the extra virgin olive oil making traditions of Italy and Spain. This new olive oil gift box is the perfect gift for those who love to cook.

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of our first vintage of olive oil in 1997, and our ranch manager, chef and winemaker team really knocked it out of the park with this one. The 2017’s golden hue—the harbinger of richness—comes without the cloying butteriness of overly ripe oils. Even with the increased ripeness, this extra virgin olive oil is still fresh and green, with hints of freshly cut grass rather than hay. Flavors of Japanese cucumber, green almond and Meyer lemon peel lead to hints of white pepper and wild arugula on the finish. The older our olive trees, the more exciting our blends become.

Once optimal ripeness was achieved, fruit was either handpicked in the brucatura tradition or shaken into special nets. Olives were milled within 12-18 hours of harvest, and the oil was never filtered or heated during the milling process. Each variety of olive was kept separate from harvesting through processing to allow all four oils to fully express themselves. The master blend of 30% Frantoio, 28% Leccino, 21% Arbequina and 21% Pendolino was selected in winter and bottled by our staff in August.
