River Channel Extra Virgin California Olive Oil is a wonderful blend of three estate-grown olive varietals, Ascolano, Leccino and Frantoio grown on the gently rolling hills along Lake Don Pedro.
These varietals create a rich, balanced flavor with the fruity rich characteristic of Ascolano, the delicate balance Leccino adds and the sharp, crisp and aromatic qualities of Frantoio. Shady V Ranch and Cellars subscribes to optimal and sustainable growing practices. Using compost, clover and wildflower cover crops to build otherwise rocky and mineral soils into a good growing medium while creating the perfect environment for a healthy bee population. The ranch runs on solar power and cattle graze the property in the winter months.
