With stone fruit and grassy notes, our Gunrock Estate extra virgin olive oil salutes our campus mascot, a Thoroughbred brought to UC Davis in 1921 to supply high-quality stock to the U.S. Army Cavalry. A blend of more than 20 olive varieties from our grove on the UC Davis campus, the fruit was harvested in November with the help of UC Davis student volunteers. The olives where milled in Winters by award-winning Bondolio and the oil was bottled in Fairfield by Olive Oil Factory. Your purchase supports the UC Davis Olive Center at the Robert Mondavi Institute. The center seeks to do for olives what UC Davis did for wine.
