“Welcome to Slo Cal. A place where slow will set you free.”

Nestled in SLO county, in the heart of Paso Robles, California, lies the beautiful Pasolivo Ranch and the new downtown Pasolivo location. Blessed by a combination of temperate Coastal weather and rich, fertile soil, we have been producing award-winning olive oil and welcoming visitors to our orchards and tasting room for over a decade.

Seattle comes to Pasolivo

The central coast of California is adapting and adjusting to a busier population and, with that, comes positive changes. As of April 13, 2017, Alaska Airlines has announced direct flights from Seattle to San Luis Obispo. This process has taken more than a year to complete and we are happy to have this opportunity!

“One of the areas we all know we have the opportunity to enhance here is our technology sector, and Seattle is a big tech area,” –San Luis Obispo County Supervisor, Adam Hill

Pasolivo comes to Seattle

With this huge announcement, we thought now would be the perfect time to visit Seattle and show Seattle what Pasolivo is all about. We had the opportunity to attend the 9th Annual Grand Tasting Event for the Seattle Wine and Food Experience, in which we provided California olive oil tastings to the public. The tasting included our award-winning olive oils, unique salt and seasoning blends, and vinegar combinations.

As part of the Seattle Wine and Food Experience, the Grand Tasting Event included The Savor Experience from San Luis Obispo County which consisted of wineries, breweries, and artisan foods. The event included more than 500 wines from the Seattle area, 25 local chefs, 25 food makers, and a Celebrity Modern Luxury Lounge. The Seattle Wine and Food Experience was created to immerse senses with wine, lifestyle, food, and beverage. With more than 275 brands, exhibits, and sponsors, this event was a huge success!

“The Seattle Wine and Food Experience curates an incredible list of makers and producers and supports the community,” adds Jamie Peha, executive producer and president of Peha Promotions, who has been running the event since 2010.

Thank you, Seattle, for an amazing time, hospitality, education, and friendships. We look forward to seeing you once again, but, this time, in our home of rolling hills, beautiful beaches, and amazing coastlines.
