Minerva Blend

By Gold Ridge Organic Farms

The Minerva blend EVOO is grown and milled on our farm in Sonoma County. It is a highly aromatic oil with hints of fresh green grass, artichoke and pine nuts. It has persistent flavors of stone fruit, green almond, green tea and a bright white pepper finish. This oil has one of our highest polyphenol counts and is medium-bodied and medium pungent. It is made from Minerva, Frantoio and Maurino olives with a touch of Cerasoula and Ladoelia. CCOF-certified organic. COOC-certified extra virgin.

About Gold Ridge Organic Farms

Gold Ridge Organic Farms was started by farmer Brooke Hazen in West Sonoma County, California. The farm sits 80 kilometers north of San Francisco, in the rolling hills of Sebastopol, where coastal breezes and optimal soils provide ideal growing conditions for 30 hectares of olives. The farm is certified organic. We make our estate-grown olives into four organic olive oils within hours of harvest in our Italian Rapanelli press. The results are delicious fresh flavors and generous antioxidants.
