5pm - 8pm - Festa dell'Olio Nuovo! Come enjoy fresh pressed olive oil from the Oregon Olive Mill! This is an annual treat and a very special event at The Olive & Vine! Olive oil is a seasonal product. Every November the Oregon Olive Mill releases a small amount of the freshly pressed oil for your enjoyment while the majority of the harvest is left to relax in stainless containers until it is ready for bottling in the spring. This product is normally not available for retail sales at locations away from the Oregon Olive Mill at Redridge Farms in Dundee, OR but thanks to a special partnership we are able to provide this product for you, in limited quantities. Once it's gone, it's gone, until next year! Enjoy the fresh, while you can!
