DURANT OLIVE MILL

Durant Olive Mill is the premier purveyor of Oregon milled Extra Virgin Olive Oil and home to the only Olioteca in the Pacific Northwest.

 

Founded in 2008, Durant Olive Mill is home to 17 acres of olive trees and a state-of-the-art Italian mill. Olive harvest and milling take place each fall with a blend of olives from our own grove and carefully sourced, outstanding growers in Northern California.

 

To participate in the harvest, come join us at our Olio Nuovo Festival, held every year the weekend before Thanksgiving. Our annual celebration of freshly milled olive oil, olio nuovo, is based on the traditional festa in southern Italy to honor the bounty of the harvest and the vibrant new oil. Our festival is family friendly and the perfect beginning to your holiday season as we bring together Oregon’s finest artisanal food producers, artists and makers. Feel yourself transported to another era at our Olio Nuovo Festival with three days of live Italian music, olio nuovo tasting, complimentary bruschetta, Durant Vineyards wine tasting and the opportunity to take home the freshest extra virgin olive oil you can find in the Pacific Northwest.

OLIVE OIL TASTING EXPERIENCES

Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and flavors of Durant at Red Ridge Farms. Our lineup of elevated tours and tastings are equally educational and entertaining. Perfect for introducing the farm to out-of-town guests or brushing up on your own knowledge of wine, olive oil and Oregon agriculture. Like everything we do here at Durant, these experiences are planned and executed with style, intention and quality.

THE ESTATE EXPERIENCE

 

A truly unique opportunity for travelers and locals alike. Join us for a guided tour of the Durant Olive Mill and the adjoining olive orchard, followed by a traditional blue glass tasting of our estate-milled extra virgin olive oils. These olive oils will be thoughtfully paired with a variety of house-prepared proteins, starches, seasonal vegetables, and even sweets to demonstrate how evoo can elevate even the most humble of foods. Durant Vineyards estate wines will round out the tasting as we compare different elevations, clones, and vintages of our estate and further explore the ways in which wine and olive oil complement each other and food.  Please use the link below to send us a reservation request via email.
