Harvest Is Approaching!

It’s approaching our favorite time of year.  Leaves begin falling, the weather cools of slightly (the high temperatures still linger for the most part here in Paso Robles), and the olives begin reaching the proper ripeness for picking.  Beginning November 23rd, everyone at Pasolivo will come together for the most important time of year – harvest!  Harvest is a magical time full of plucking olives straight from the tree and running them through the mill to create delicious Olio Nuovo (fresh olive oil), all in the same day.  Harvest will last approximately three weeks. We look forward to enjoying the magic with you!
