We are proud to release the 2023 KATZ Estate Grown Chef’s Pick Extra Virgin Olive Oil
20th Anniversary of our multi-award-winning oil…quite a tasty journey!
Since our humble beginnings, we always have sought to craft an authentic extra virgin olive oil and to consistently do so year after year. Over that time, we never stopped striving to be better growers and more importantly better stewards of the land. And because of that we derive great pride from so many high-end restaurant chefs choosing to use our oils in their kitchens, and to having the venerable and world-famous Chez Panisse in Berkeley, CA make us the first California oil featured in their kitchen, has always been a nice cherry on top, or should I say drizzle.
Now to the reason we are here…KATZ Farm 2023 KATZ Chef’s Pick Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil is now available!
The olives were again pressed at the Frantoio Grove mill under the watchful and keen eye of Patrick Martin. The backbone of this oil comes from the Taggiasca and Casaliva varietals together with our newer planting of Favalosa olives, all grown on our Rock Hill Ranch in the historic Suisun Valley. (A few other cultivars make up the rest of the blend including Frantoio, Nocellara and Picual, totaling about 15% of the finished oil.)
These tasting notes from Patrick are spot on:
Green almond, fresh cut grass, artichoke, floral, elegant, balanced, soft up front with a spicy finish, complex mix of green and ripe fruit qualities.
The blend will continue to evolve as climate change and small farming in general adapts to meet the needs and challenges presented to us yearly, but what will never change is our effort to craft excellent, high-quality olive oil year after year. Our 40+ gold medals over the last 20 years hopefully stand as a testament to our determination to make sure our name KATZ Farm on the label is your assurance of those ongoing efforts.
We Thank You for Your Support These Last 20 Years! The KATZ Family
