The season of the olive crush is always a special time at Séka Hills Olive Mill and Tasting Room in the heart of the Capay Valley. This year is also the mill’s tenth anniversary, so come out to celebrate!

You’ll get to experience the transformation of olives into the seasonal treasure called olio nuovo. This special olive oil, with its bright, distinctive flavor, is a reward of the harvest after the work and dedication put in throughout the year. Be among the first to taste it! Just 400 gallons were produced this year, and it is available only at the Séka Hills Tasting Room.

At the festival, you’ll get to watch the mill in action. Tribal Executive Chef Casey Willard will be cooking with olio nuovo and discussing its seasonal uses. Fine food artisans, local vendors, and food trucks will be on site along with live music and dancing on the patio.

Owned and operated by the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, the Tasting Room in the heart of the Capay Valley provides an insider’s view of how the Tribe’s olives are grown, milled, and finished into world-class Séka Hills extra virgin olive oils.
