2022/23 POINTS NORTH BLEND

Cal State Fair Silver

This year we were only able to produce a single, small batch blend.   So we decided once again to bottling under the Points North label.  Our Tuscan-style EVOO encompasses all of our Italian varietals.  The oil is so balanced, smooth, fruit forward on the palate, finishing with a hint of pungency.   We feel this oil is gold winning quality - just wish we had more of it!  Each bottle is styled with a label that resembles a geodetic survey marker and continues to feature our German Shorthaired Pointer show dog "Cisco" - AKC National Champion GSP for 2021!

Tasting Sensations:  Artichoke, Arugula, Tomato Leaf & Green Fruit

2016/17 Multiple GOLD, Best in Class Points North Blend

This was the first year to introduced a new brand, label, and blend variation. This blend consists predominately of Maurino, Frantoio, Coratina and touch of Mission.

Named in honour of our German Shorthaired Pointers as well as our Central Coast locale, the profile of this blend highlights nuances of artichoke, tomato leaf, eucalyptus, grass and fruitiness 'stacked' with black pepper & walnut shell.

However, the labeling could only highlight our inspiration but doesn't give the whole story. The patches on the dog were taken from each our puppy boys (Tuscan, Wyatt & Pongo), and of course, within our signature bird logo is our daughter Shelby's footprints - a representation of the whole Partridge Family!

Due to limited quantities (just 13 cases produced), only a 250mL size will be available this year.
