The Oil Mill in Santa Ynez

The Addisons first became involved in the olive oil industry when they inherited an olive orchard in the South of France from Antoinette’s father. The very first oil they made won a Gold Medal at the Fair Olive Oils of the World Competition in 2004. It repeated in 2005 and 2006. It was selected by Marco Oreggia in his guide book, L'Extravergine, as one of the best extra virgin olive oils in the world, in 2005, 2006 and again in 2007.
