Earlier this week we took a group out to the Seka Hills Olive Mill in the Capay Valley. The Yocha Dehe Nation have over 125 acres of olives in production with varieties of arbequina, koroneiki, and frantoio. They planted the olives in 2008 and installed their mill in 2012. The mill is used for production of the tribes' extra virgin olive oil and is offered as a service to local regional olive growers.
We enjoyed an educational tour of the mill and a gourmet lunch. We also participated in a wine tasting, olive oil and balsamic tasting, honey tasting and sampled some gourmet walnuts and almonds.
This was a great way to spend a day enjoying local olive oil facilities, learning about olive oil production and enjoying wonderful food/wine with friends.
Stay tuned we will be planning our next day outing for end of March.
