  • Grower and/or Producer
    We grow olive trees

    Alta Cresta’s Orchard is planted with four Italian olive varietals; Leccino, Coratina, Frantoio and Pendolino. These varietals produce extra virgin olive oil that is fruity with a peppery finish. Alta Cresta selected these Italian varietals because the climate and soil conditions of the Paso Robles area are very similar of the Italian region of Tuscany.
