The Pedregal Estate is located in the Eastern HIlls of Oakville, Napa Valley. The Mendelson’s trees are a mix of older Spanish varietals that were originally brought over by the missionaries … and Italian varietals that were planted to border the Pedregal vineyards. Because the olives are harvested early, the estate always produces a BIG green fruity oil…the mixture of varietals and ages of the trees combine to produce an unique extra virgin olive oil. Our take is always quite small and it usually sells out with the first email announcing it’s release.
I spoke to Ralph and they are set to pick next week…..the harvest is light this year so we will probably end up with no more than 10 gallons. We will let the oil settle into Dec. and choose it’s release date based on how it settles….most likely mid December.
