Annette Schoonover and Richard Wolf of Winterhill Olive Oil
Winterhill Olive Oil
El Dorado County, CA
At Winterhill we are about expecting miracles, fulfilling passions and supporting the creative spirit. This land, that we have named “Winterhill,” has been an inspiration since it presented itself to us in 2003. This inspiration has brought us to co-creating a business that fulfills our passions, by joining the other California Artisanal in producing the finest Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
ABOUT OUR GROVE
Our groves consist of approximately 1,700 olive trees: Frantoio, Leccino, Lucca, San Felice, Pendolino , Piqual Maurino, and Taggiasca – and our Shakespeare’s Acre field blend has been awarded Silver medals in the International Competitions held in Los Angeles and New York.
OUR PERFECT DAY
