Californian Arbequina

Two varietals that are perfectly suited to complement each other and bring out the best of both. Arbequina, ripe fruity with a great diversity of secondary aromas, especially apple and banana. Arbosana, fresh fruit olive nose with artichoke and green tomato overlay. Together produce an impeccable flavor and aroma.

Kalamata Olives are synonymous with Greece and we are excited to have this exceptional varietal in our lineup.  Full fresh fruity aroma, medium to robust intensity with a well-balanced mild peppery finish.  Flavor is earthy and stunningly delicious.  Pair it with Black Walnut Balsamic for a refreshing salad dressing, combine with Hickory Balsamic for basting meats or drizzle over vegetables before broiling.  A favorite for dipping, and we love it in mashed potatoes.
