Our Olive Orchard

We are blessed at Campovida to have over 500 Italian Olive Trees planted at the property. The Fetzer Family planted all the various orchards in the 1980’s. Our orchard is a mixed orchard of frantioio, picual, lucca, moraiolo, nevavdillo, and grossa di spagna. The CCOF Certified orchard is located at Campovida in the town of Hopland along the banks of the upper Russian River. The site’s riverbed gravelly loam soil provides an ideal site for growing world-class Italian olives.

Harvest notes

2015 harvest season proved to be one of the largest and best crops in recent years.  A dry spring allowed a perfect fruit set and crop levels were larger than average, while a warmer than normal summer quickened the growing season and the beginning of harvest was the earliest on record. However, the weather was perfect for  growing Italian olives because of the warmer summer temperatures that helped olives develop amazing flavors. The olives were hand harvested and crushed the same day using a stone mill, which produced only the finest unfiltered oil. This unique oil is 100% hand harvested and is loaded with antioxidants.

Producer's notes

Rich with heavy green olive flavors, with an intensity robust finish of freshness with fruit and pepper. It has an outstanding aromatic peppery flavor with a fruity rich fished, it is a deep muddled green and gold in color, with a full aroma on the nose. Use when exceptional olive oil flavor is desired for finishing dishes such as salads, sautéed vegetables, and rice or even over popcorn! A delightful appetizer of fresh bread dipped in the oil. Wine Pairings: Campovida 2014 Arnies and Campovida 2014 Montepulciano.
