You May Not Know
Trattore is the Italian word for Tractor.
Owner Tim Bucher is a farmer and tractor enthusiast.
Inside the tasting room are two shiny tractors.
One is a shiny red Porsche tractor.
I had no idea Porsche made tractors?!?
When you think of Trattore you think of delicious wine AND Olive Oil!
Olive trees grow well in the hot and dry summers of Dry Creek Valley.
Late October is the beginning of olive harvest.
Trattore farms imported an entire Italian mill from Gruppo Pieralisi, Italy.
All olive oil extracted from the Trattore Farms mill is extra virgin.
Not only do they mill their own olive oil, they also offer milling to olive growers.
Local olive growers with 1,000lbs or more of olives can use Trattore’s mill.
I think there are at least 15 olive oil and vinegar flavors to sample.
Some interesting olive oil flavors are: Basil, Jalapeño, and Lime.
Wine club members may choose a club option which includes olive oil with their club shipment.
This past October, my friend, Katie, invited me to go olive picking.
She had a connection to a property with several overflowing olive trees.
Olive picking is hard and time consuming! SO MANY tiny olives on a tree.
A brilliant idea suggestion, throw a sheet down and shake olives off the tree with a rake.
I recommend tracking down access to an olive tree and create a new family tradition, fall olive picking.
After we filled up our huge tubs with olives, we headed to Trattore Farms.
On certain days in October, you may drop off your olives at Trattore.
Trattore mills your olives into the most delicious olive oil.
Your olive oil pickup day is EXCITING!
DON’T do what we did.
The views at Trattore are so incredible; we wanted to take a picture.
We placed our gallon of olive oil on a ledge for the perfect sunshine/ vineyard view pic.
Yep, our gallon toppled off the ledge.
Luckily it didn’t fall far.
A kind tasting room man jumped over the fence to fetch it for us.
I can’t wait to make olive oil this fall!
Makes for great Christmas presents.
