CEDAR MOUNTAIN OLIVE OIL

Cedar Mountain Joins Livermore
Olive Oil Boom

Earl and Linda Ault of Cedar Mountain have been making first-rate Cabernet Sauvignon and a roster of other wines on Tesla Road — Livermore’s “winery row” — for nearly 15 years. Now they’ve added their own olive oil, made from a stand of olive trees that separate their property from a neighboring winery.

True to the hands-on, do-it-yourself spirit of the Livermore wine scene, the Aults and partner Tony Baresio took some classes in olive oil appreciation, bought a small press and some books and made their first tiny batch (35 gallons) from the 2003 olive harvest. (The label says Trucillo – Baresio, Trucillo being an Ault family name on the Italian side.)

Olive oil production in the Livermore Valley dates back to the 1880s and in recent years it’s been making a comeback. With Cedar Mountain on line, there are about a dozen locally-grown and produced olive oils, several associated with wineries. — Tim Patterson
