OLIVE OIL TASTING

VISITCALIFORNIA.COM

When Spanish missionaries planted California’s first olive trees in the late 18th century, it was no divine intervention; the savvy padres knew that California’s warm, sunny climate was ideal for growing olives. Much like the state’s wineries, many olive oil producers and purveyors welcome visitors for tastings and tours at ranches, mills, and storefronts across California.
