After working for 10 years with Apollo Olive Oil I have started my own consultant company, specialized in the area of tasting & blending and supervising quality during production. I participate in the COOC tasting panel and in the UC Davis tasting panel and have been a judge in different competitions.
I regularly teach classes on sensory evaluation of olive oil.
The olives for our 100% natural Pacific Sun Olive Oil are locally grown and harvested. Then we mill and bottle the oil right here on our family farm in Tehama County, at the head of California’s fertile central valley. Pacific Sun exists to create artisanal foods that express and preserve the unique flavors of our growing region and our agricultural community.
