Trattore Farm Tractor
  • When you think of Trattore you think of delicious wine AND Olive Oil! 
  • Olive trees grow well in the hot and dry summers of Dry Creek Valley. 
  • Late October is the beginning of olive harvest. 
  • Trattore farms imported an entire Italian mill from Gruppo Pieralisi, Italy. 
  • All olive oil extracted from the Trattore Farms mill is extra virgin.
  • Not only do they mill their own olive oil, they also offer milling to olive growers.  
  • Local olive growers with 1,000lbs or more of olives can use Trattore's mill.
  • I think there are at least 15 olive oil and vinegar flavors to sample.
  • Some interesting olive oil flavors are: Basil, Jalapeño, and Lime.
  • Wine club members may choose a club option which includes olive oil with their club shipment. 
Trattore Farms Olive Oil

Sheila's Recommendation

  • This past October, my friend, Katie, invited me to go olive picking.
  • She had a connection to a property with several overflowing olive trees.
  • Olive picking is hard and time consuming!  SO MANY tiny olives on a tree. 
  • A brilliant idea suggestion, throw a sheet down and shake olives off the tree with a rake.  
  • I recommend tracking down access to an olive tree and create a new family tradition, fall olive picking. 
  • After we filled up our huge tubs with olives, we headed to Trattore Farms. 
  • On certain days in October, you may drop off your olives at Trattore.  
  • Trattore mills your olives into the most delicious olive oil.
  •  Your olive oil pickup day is EXCITING! 
  • DON'T do what we did.
  • The views at Trattore are so incredible; we wanted to take a picture.
  • We placed our gallon of olive oil on a ledge for the perfect sunshine/ vineyard view pic. 
  • Yep, our gallon toppled off the ledge.
  • Luckily it didn't fall far.
  • A kind tasting room man jumped over the fence to fetch it for us. 
  • I can't wait to make olive oil this fall!
  • Makes for great Christmas presents.
