We invite you to experience the sensational extra virgin oils of Berkeley Olive Grove.
Understanding Bitterness and Pungency: Bitterness and pungency (pepperiness) are positive attributes that are flavor characteristics of various phenols. With food these add condiment value, just as do spices or herbs. Healthfully, these phenols provide antioxidant and cardiovascular benefits. Our olive oils feature high levels of natural biophenols with proven anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cardioprotective and neuroprotective activity. Our robust olive oils ranked among the top 2.5% of worldwide olive oils analyzed by World Olive Labs from 2010 to 2015 (link opens in a new window or tab).
Our Blood Orange Olive Oil offers exotic nuances in salads, on light vegetables, fish, chicken, oriental dishes, and in desserts and baking. When used in conjunction with our more robust oils, it adds luxury to stronger or spicier dishes (red meats, heavier soups, and oriental foods). Medicinal users of our Robust Classic suggest blending some of this oil to make a daily dose all the more enjoyable.

Our 2018 Blood Orange is bright, new and alive with fresh citrus; you'll taste the orange zest and flesh. Enlivening, some will be tempted to breathe it in or bathe in it. Delightfully delicious, treat yourself to vanilla ice cream or rice gelato drizzled with this scrumptious oil; and it's amazing on any fresh fruit!

This season’s Classic offers a boldly balanced level of bitterness and pepperiness. With it, you will experience the flavors and aromas of fresh-cut grass, green vegetables, tomato, and sweet almond! It comes from our earliest harvest of green Mission olives and packs a kick at the finish. An oil of robust intensity, it elevates full-flavored foods; pairs well with spicy dishes, heavy soups, pasta dishes, casseroles, and red meats. With a total phenol value of 395 ppm, this is both a "medicinal", as reported by food scientists (see above: Understanding Bitterness and Pungency), and culinary EVOO. Think of this one as rocket fuel for your health, your health, and your health! Darro and Olivia take a straight shot of this daily.

Watch our tasting video for this ultra-premium oil!
Our Gold this harvest presents a beautiful canvas of early fruit, grass, tomato, with hints of caramel, parsley, oregano, and mint; and offers a wonderful balance of ripe and green notes. The complexities of this oil again make it Olivia's favorite, "Its pepper and butteriness lingers." Its versatile medium level of intensity brings an engaging balanced bitterness and pepperiness at the finish, complimenting hearty flavors, hard cheeses, whole grain foods, and white meats or freshwater fish.

This year's Reserve tastes of buttery rich olive with just a brush of fresh grass and tomato; some palates pick-up a hint of lavender. Its late harvest intensity offers a lovely fruitiness in the aroma while offering a condiment enhancing pepperiness. It features subtle nuances in more delicate foods such as white fish, seafood, white rice, delicate vegetables, and milder cheeses. This is a wonderful dipping oil.
