I harvest olives from Wineries, Grape Growers, and Estate Properties in the Napa Valley. I work closely with the viticulturists to cultivate the olive trees throughout the growing season. When the time comes for harvest, my team picks and I then process the olives into premium olive oil.
My long span of culinary experience all began by working at restaurants in my hometown of Buffalo, NY. I moved to Napa Valley over 20 years ago to pursue a higher education in Food and Wine. After spending over 4 years working and studying at the Wine Spectator Greystone Restaurant at the Culinary Institute of America (Greystone campus), I transferred to the CIA Hyde Park and graduated in 2004 with my AOS in Culinary Arts. In 2012, I opened Calistoga Olive Oil Company and began the journey of making olive oil for a living. Today, I use the expertise I have learned over the years to produce and source amazing culinary ingredients and to make them available for your everyday use and to help bring joy to your table.
Over the past years, as the owner of several olive oil companies, I have done the research and development necessary in order to produce and source the highest quality olive oil, aged wine vinegars, culinary salts, and our famous salted almonds. My goal is to offer the highest quality ingredients coupled with seamless customer service, in order to assist in elevating your at home dining experience and make impressing friends and family an easy and flavorful experience.
