To achieve this complementary perfection, Lucero mills fresh mission olives and crushes them together with sweet hand-picked mandarin oranges from the finest groves in California's Butte & Placer Counties. Mix with a dash of balsamic vinegar and drizzle over fresh greens, marinate meats and poultry, as well as great for baking brownies and muffins, or cooking pancakes and waffles. Pairs well with a well-balanced Shiraz or Cabernet. Recent Gold Medal winner at both the 2013 LA County Fair Olive Oil Competition and 2013 Napa County Fair Olive Oil Competition.

Lucero Olive Oil is based in Corning, a small Northern California community known as ''Olive City" that has been home to olive trees for over a century. The company was founded in 2005 and is owned and operated by local Corning folk devoted to growing healthy trees and milling a premium selection of oils from the original century-old trees in their town, as well as several of their own estate holdings comprised of 21st century medium and high density orchards about ten minutes north of the town.
