Olive ready for crush

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.

We take pride in sharing this process and tradition with our community along with our nation-wide customers. From the sun, to the soil, to the branch, to the bottle, to you… we remain committed to the highest quality oil.
