And the Gold medals keep coming!

And the Gold medals keep coming!

After the Los Angeles International Olive Oil Competition results we reported last month (where the Mistral was judged Best of Class), both the Mistral and Sierra won Gold medals at the California State Fair Olive Oil Competition. Now, we’re eagerly awaiting the results of the New York International Olive Oil Competition, which will come out very soon.

As you may realize, our Gold Series mono-varietal oils are really ‘limited release’ specialties – there’s not enough to send to the competitions.  You can know though, that we select them as the best-of-the-best we produce. To learn more about these oils and to purchase, visit

Now Available – The new Salúte

With the bottling of the new oil, we upgraded the packaging to our elegant new bottle.  The opaque label excludes light (preventing rapid photo-oxidation), thereby allowing you to keep the bottle handy on your kitchen counter.  This 375 ml size is available for $14.95.

The new oil is also available now in the 1.32 gallon Salúte box.

Upcoming North Sierra Wine Trail

This spring’s annual event will be the weekend of April 28th-29th, from 12 to 5 pm.  Experience 12 boutique wineries nestled in our little stretch of the Sierra foothills between Oroville and Dobbins. Taste small batch artisan wine making at its best. Meet the real owners and wine makers for answers to all your questions. Visit for more information, tickets, and trail maps.

We’ll be there too, with our three local Oregon House wineries, sampling our new oils and sharing our story at the Frenchtown Inn.

Tip: You can make a restful mini-vacation for yourselves out of the event by checking out the lovely AirBnBs on the Oregon House/Dobbins end of the trail.
