Séka Hills Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Aroma: Grassy and fruity
Flavor: A textbook example of what balanced oil is -- fruity, bitter and pungent with lots of green flavors of fresh green apples, green tea, green bananas and green almonds
Uses: The perfect all-purpose oil - use for sautéing, frying, or finishing. Ideal for vinaigrettes, pasta, mashed potatoes, or to finish grilled vegetables. A great dipping oil with dukkah or other spices
About the Producer: Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, a federally recognized sovereign nation, has embraced the ancient Mediterranean tradition of growing olives and is using the most modern methods to produce remarkable California certified extra virgin olive oil. The Yocha Dehe named the oil Séka Hills after the blue hills where they farm in the Capay Valley. In addition to its successful Cache Creek casino operations, the Tribe sustainably manages more than 13,000 acres with more than a dozen crops, partners with organic growers, and grazes a growing herd of 300 cattle on tribal rangeland. The Séka Hills operation uses Super High Density plantings in the groves, mechanical harvesting, and has built a state-of the-art mill.
