Olio Nuovo Celebration 2020
Durant’s Olio Nuovo Festival is back in 2020 and this year we are celebrating all November long! To better accommodate guest safety and social distancing guidelines* we have expanded our three-day festival to be a month-long celebration. Come up to Durant at Red Ridge Farms daily from 11 AM – 4 PM for all things Olio this November. Taste and purchase this season’s freshly milled Olio Nuovo (new oil) extra virgin olive oil at our gift shop. Take a tour of the Durant Olive Mill to see, first hand, how olive oil is made here at Oregon’s only commercial olive mill. Find holiday inspiration out in the Nursery that is filled with natural greens for decorating/crafting, artisan-made wreaths, one-of-a-kind pottery, and unique growing gifts. The Gift Shop has been doubled in size to fit even more Durant olive oil, wine, culinary goods, gift boxes, local food, art, cookbooks, houseplants, and so much more!
Now open by reservation, Durant Vineyards Tasting Lodge at Durant Olive Mill is offering wine tasting flights on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays to the public. Our new Tasting Lodge is a cozy wine tasting room with plenty of space to gather in small groups and enjoy tasting Durant Vineyards estate wines and small bites. Durant Vineyards Tasting Room is now Durant Vineyards Clubhouse: an exclusive wine lounge open daily, by reservation, to Durant Club members only.
