Cold-extracted exclusively from Picual variety olives grown on the Lucero Estate in Corning, California. A favorite variety of Spain that is often milled when very ripe, Lucero chooses to present this olive variety in a green style in order to capture the variety’s tomato leaf aromas and tomato fruit flavors. Try this peppery oil with grilled meats and veggies, or drizzling over a hearty soup. Recent Gold Award winner at the 2016 New York International Olive Oil Competition.
Lucero Olive Oil is based in Corning, a small Northern California community known as ÛÏOlive 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.
