Our passion for Sicily, its culture, its foodways—and especially the olive oil—moved us to transform our 10-acre almond orchard into a traditional Sicilian olive grove.
As dedicated stewards of the land, we have always practiced sustainable farming methods and are gentle with our trees. Our estate-blend oil is certified organic and we are certified as an organic producer and processor, which means our mill doesn’t use any chemicals to extract the oil.
Bondolio’s Sicilian estate blend is an elegant and unique California extra virgin olive oil, milled onsite from Nocellara, Biancolilla, and Cerasuola olives. This flavor profile, while readily found in Southern Italy and Sicily, is quite rare among oils produced in California.
Our estate blend is critically acclaimed and is a 3-time Good Food Award winner. Other repeat awards include Best in Show at the California State Fair; 4 gold medals at the New York International Olive Oil Competition; and frequent gold medals from prestigious international olive oil competitions.
Our Mandarin Orange Olive Oil has also earned a gold medal at the California State Fair and a Good Food Award.
