About Us

The Olive Press was the very first olive mill in Sonoma, California and was the brain child of a great man, Edward Stolman. The Olive Press is now known as the most highly awarded olive oil producer in the nation. We are committed to producing the highest quality of olive oil along with an array of handmade artisanal products while serving the pressing needs of the community.

Whether we are producing our award winning house made products, crushing olives for local wineries and estates, or accepting olives from small growers in the community, we have a consistent mission. We are running a business which promotes the growing of quality fruit, the quality care of that fruit, the quality harvest, the milling, the racking, the storing, the bottling, the education, and the eventual presentation and selling of this beautiful oil.

Fred and Nancy Cline purchased The Olive Press in April of 2013, at the behest of their dear friend Ed Stolman. He knew that the tradition of integrity, quality, and attention to detail would be carried on by the Clines, who have had  30 years of experience with Cline Cellars Winery, as well as Jacuzzi Family Vineyards, Dillon Beach Resort, The Mizpah Hotel, and Villa Laura. It is a striving for quality products and service that motivate us every day. We take pride in sharing the process and tradition of olive oil production with our community and our worldwide customers. From the sun, to the soil, to the branch, to the bottle, to you... we remain committed to Ed Stolman's innovative vision for The Olive Press, and to all of you... our respected customers.
