sciabica olive oil tour
Sciabica’s California Olive Oil was founded by Nicola Sciabica in 1936. Nicola Sciabica chose Modesto to settle in and grow his olives because it reminded him of the warm Mediterranean climate he was used to in Sicily. The Sciabica family has been cold-pressing olive oil on the same property in Modesto for over 80 years. They are the oldest producer in the United States. Today, the third and fourth generations of the Sciabica family carry on the family tradition of olive oil production.

Cowgirl Creamery was founded by Sue Conley and Peggy Smith in 1997. Prior to, both women established careers in prominent Bay area kitchens. Two decades later, they’ve earned dozens of awards, have 2 creameries and 4 retail stores, and they have produced over 2,000 tons of cheese that is loved by chefs and consumers alike. Cowgirl Creamery cheeses are recognized and loved for their unique flavor profiles and high quality ingredients. One reason that Cowgirl Creamery cheeses are so special and delicious is that each cheese starts with milk made from only one source creating distinct flavors that can’t be created anywhere else. We proudly offer the following:
Mt. Tam– Their first aged, soft-ripened cheese is named for a Northern California landmark, Mt. Tamalpais. This elegant triple cream cheese has the delectable flavor of cultured butter with hints of white mushroom. Mt. Tam starts with milk from Straus Family Creamery. Available year-round. 8oz round.
Red Hawk– This cheese cannot be made anywhere else because the wild bacteria that defines this bold, sumptuous cheese are native to Point Reyes. Red Hawk is aged four weeks and washed with a brine solution that creates the sunset red-orange rind. Its flavor is rich and smooth, complemented by pungent aromas. Available year-round. 8oz round.
Hop Along– A rich, semi-firm organic cow's milk cheese washed with organic cider and aged 45 days. Hop Along offers bright acidity and flavors of brown bread and milk chocolate with a distinct savory note toward the rind. Hop Along is only available seasonally and will be in stock for the next few weeks. 5# wheel.
Chimney Rock- During four weeks of aging, this soft cheese develops a bloomy rind which is then spritzed with wine. It is then rolled in dried shiitake mushrooms, black pepper, and summer savory. Chimney Rock is a soft textured cheese with earthy flavors and hints of apricot and orange blossom. Only available during the fall. 8oz round.
