It’s harvest time…
and the Séka Hills Olive Mill and Tasting Room invites the public to experience the fresh flavors of the olive harvest and milling season. Beginning in mid-October, with the first milling, and continuing through November, visitors
can see the Mill in action and taste the freshest of olive oils, the prized Olio Nuovo.
Owned and operated by the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, the Tasting Room offers an insider’s view of how the Tribe’s olives are grown, milled and finished into world-class Séka Hills extra virgin olive oils. Guided tastings of Séka Hills olive oil, wine, honey and nuts offer visitors a chance to experience the growing line of fine agricultural products from the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation.
Signaling the start of harvest, Olio Nuovo is bottled in limited amounts directly after milling. Its fresh, bright and bold flavor celebrates the season and is meant to be enjoyed within a few months of harvest. Most of the new harvest oils are “settled” for several weeks before bottling.
Special festivities culminate in November with the Olive Crush Festival and open house on Saturday, November 7 and the Olio Nuovo Dinner on Saturday, November 21.
