10 Years of Curating Culinary Delights.
We are a family, veteran owned small business located in Menifee, CA. We started in 2011 offering fresh pressed olive oil from our family's grove at farmers markets in the Orange County and San Diego areas.
Ten years later, we have partnered with local producers to offer olive and avocado oil grown in California and aged balsamic vinegars imported from Modena, Italy as well as honey, tea, spices, salts, soaps, jams and jellies from our San Diego farmers market friends.
We hope you enjoy a taste of what California has to offer!
Thank you for supporting our small business!

I love your olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and tea blends. You offer extremely high-quality products with amazing flavor profiles. I add a drizzle the olive oil, vinegars, or combination of both as a quick, easy way to elevate steamed/fresh veggies, pasta, grilled fruit and vegetables, fish, and salads. The flavors are bold, delicious, and full-bodied.

I make an arugula salad everyday for lunch and I always use the signature balsamic from California Olive - the White Balsamic Vinegar (aged from Modena) in my dressing. It is just the right touch of sweetness and flavor. AND when I make it for others they always want to know what I am using. It is just perfect and being a salad lover I can’t be without it – sounds silly but true!

After trying all different kinds of balsamic vinegars and olive oils, we have narrowed down our favorites and place a new order as soon as we get down to the next-to-the-last bottle. Our favorite is the balsamic vinegar of Modena. We also like the fig, raspberry and the seasonal blueberry.
