2018/19 Tusci Blend

The 2018 growing season proved to be very difficult for most California olive growers, with no exception for us on the Central Coast.  It was due to a very warm February followed by a series of late cold storms, quickly warming up afterward.  This seemed to cause tree bloom confusion and, consequently, olive yields were extremely down. However, what little olives there were to harvest has produced exceptional oil! 

Our signature Gold winning Tuscan-style olive oil this year is a blend of only 2 varieties - Frantoio & Coratina, but we feel it is our best yet!  It has beautiful balance of fruity herbaceous & black pepper.  A medium-to-bold blend that is just awesome for dipping or finishing. 

  • Olive Variety:  Frantoio & Coratina
  • Intensity:  Medium
  • Harvest Period:  October 2018

Only 10 Gallons Produced.  Because of limited availability, pricing was a little higher this year for all California produced extra virgin olive oil.  

Sizes: 400mL or 750mL
