We don't like to play favorites, but Séka Hills is one of the olive oils you'll find in our pantries at all times. This California-milled oil is one of our go-to EVOOs for everyday use —and, now it's available in a 3-liter box with a pour spout!
This extra virgin olive oil made entirely from the Arbequina cultivar is well-balanced with aromas of fresh green apples and a fruity flavor profile that boasts hints of artichoke and pepper. A medium-intensity oil.
How to Use
Use Séka Hills Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil for sautéing, frying, or finishing. Ideal for vinaigrettes, pasta, mashed potatoes, or to finish grilled vegetables. Try using it to fry your eggs in the morning. Plus, this estate-made oil is a great dipping oil.
About the Producer

The Yocha Dehe named the oil Séka Hills after the blue hills where they farm in the Capay Valley. In addition to its successful Cache Creek casino operations, the Tribe sustainably manages more than 22,000 acres with more than a dozen crops, partners with organic growers, and grazes a growing herd of 700 cattle on tribal rangeland. The Séka Hills operation uses Super High Density plantings in the Arbequina groves, mechanical harvesting, and mills onsite at its custom-built Alfa Laval mill.
