Color, aromas, and flavor evolve daily as the oil finds its balance. This is olive oil at its freshest, most aromatic, and boldest!
Visually: Emerald green the day it is milled, the oil changes to “olive green” with golden highlights, and it becomes more golden and less cloudy as it settles in the bottle.
Aroma: It smells of fresh herbs with aromas of green almonds, tomato leaves and scent of bay leaf.
Taste: Layered with fresh, bright flavors and bold pungency, this oil is herbaceous with pleasant bitterness and a peppery and spicy finish. It will evolve daily.
About Seka Hills
SPECIALTY FOODS FROM THE YOCHA DEHE WINTUN NATION
As the historical inhabitants of California’s Capay Valley, our homeland is at the heart of our culture and heritage. Our long term view towards stewardship and environmental sustainability reflects a sacred commitment to this land and to the well being of future generations. Today, we are proud to share the bounty of the Capay Valley through our estate grown wines and extra virgin olive oils. With over 24,000 acres in production, Yocha Dehe owns one of the most diverse farming operations in Yolo County and is one of the few tribes with expanding agriculture in California. Of the 3,000 acres currently being farmed, 250 acres are certified organic, and more than 1,200 acres of the Tribe’s land are in permanent conservation easements. Our Tribe takes great pride in managing and cultivating more than 16 different crops and using best practices for sustainable farming. Natural systems include the use of beneficial insects, cover crops, mulching, drip systems and careful crop rotation cycles. In partnership with Cache Creek Conservancy and the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the Tribe is also removing invasive species that displace wildlife-friendly plants and increase erosion and flooding in the Capay Valley.
