Yesterday the last 40 liters of the 2014 harvest was delivered to The Quail and Olive in Carmel Valley.
This store has an interesting clinical history. The idea of a boutique offering only the highest quality, California sourced olive oils and vinegars was conceived of by Stephen and Deb Brabeck. As a practicing cardiologist, Steve has had a unique perspective to observe a link between the prevention of chronic illness such heart disease and the chemistry of the oil from olives. The Brabecks decided to take the doctor’s clinical knowledge and passion into a commercial enterprise. Today The Quail and Olive of Carmel Valley is now an important member of the Bondolio family.
