About us:
Chateau de Luz was co-founded in 2022 by husband-wife team Sandra and Alan. They bought their olive estate in 2020 while visiting some properties in the beautiful De Luz hills of southern California. It was love at the first sight. The dreamy landscape is reminiscent of South of France's Provence where Sandra grew up, and where her family has been harvesting and milling olives for over a century.

The 6 acres estate has its own milling equipment which allow the owners to mill the olives within 24h of harvest. We practice organic farming with a focus on enriching the land and promoting biodiversity. Their goal is to produce the highest standard of extra virgin olive oil with an optimum antioxidant count and a scrumptious taste reflective of the land it comes from.

Harvest 2021
Small harvest rich in flavor
It is with great joy that we present the release of our first Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil. After great anticipation and watching carefully our olives mature over the summer and fall, we decided for our first blend to have to have a minimum of 40% green olives so we could produce an extra virgin olive oil rich in flavors and polyphenols, which are so good for our health. Since we did heavily pruned our trees at the beginning of the winter, this year's harvest was small, just over a ton of olives, which was perfect for our first milling adventure.

Hand picked for maximum quality
Our olive harvest happened over two weekends between the end October and the beginning of November 2021. All our olives were picked by hand by our crew, to protect the integrity of the fruits as well as not damaging the trees. Our pickers either use their hands or small plastic olive racks to gently brush the olives out of the branches. Olives that fall on the ground are not harvested.

Olives milled within 24 hours
Time is of the essence in olive oil making, especially when you aim at producing an Ultra Premium quality. The flesh part of the olive starts to degrade as soon as they are picked up from the trees, so the sooner you can crush them, the higher quality the olive oil will be. Since we have our own milling equipment on our estate, we can process the freshly picked olives within 24 hours to produce an oil with an optimum quality. Actually, the first batch started within 6 hours of the harvest.

Small batches production
Our process is truly artisan. Our equipment can only process small batches of 400 pounds of olives at the time, which ends up creating about 30 liters of the liquid gold. Quite the opposite of industrial production indeed. But what we may lack in term of volume, we get it back in term of exceptional quality. Small production gives us the ability to watch and nurture every single batch.

Ultra Premium Standard
Our olive oil was analyzed by an independent laboratories and we are proud to know the results qualify our oil as Ultra Premium, a standard above Extra Virgin. The Ultra Premium standard guarantees you are getting the best quality of extra virgin olive oil that is available on the market. You most likely won't be finding this liquid gold on the shelves your supermarket ... { Up to 80% of oils sold in the US as extra virgin olive oil are adulterated } ... but though small and dedicated olive growers like ourselves.


Raw and unfiltered
In order for an extra virgin olive oil to be recognized as ‘extra virgin’, it must be first cold pressed. Cold press means that the maximum temperature at which the mill can operate usually 27 °C (80.6 °F) which makes the olive oil raw. Filtration is a matter of personal preference. Filtration does extend shelf life, but we also lose a certain amount of polyphenols and natural antioxidants present above all in the skin and pulp of the olive. We decided not to filter our oil to keep its maximum potency. Our olive oil may be cloudy but certainly full of goodness.

Ultra rich in polyphenol
Olive oil contains at least 30 different phenolic compounds, including oleacein, tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol. By definition, high phenolic olive oil contains at least 250 mg polyphenols per kilogram of oil. So, not all olive oils are high in polyphenols as it depends greatly on how the oils are processed and stored.

As our lab result shows, with a polyphenol content of 354 and an Hydroxytyrosol* count of 266 which is 30 times higher than regular extra virgin olive oil**, Chateau de Luz 2021 is a fantastic addition to your daily health routine. You can use the olive oil in your salad, or simply take a shot of olive every day.

* Studies show that Hydroxytyrosol (HTX) is a potent antioxidant, present in olive fruits and virgin olive oil, that presents regulatory properties in metabolism, inflammation, and immunomodulation and also acts as neuroprotector in human and animal pathologies. The beneficial effects of HTX are mainly attributed to its potent antioxidant ... which are able to counteract the pernicious consequences of oxidative stress in the organism.
** Hydroxytyrosol count is about 7 mg/Kg for a regular olive oil on average.

Unique taste
Our Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil also tastes wonderful. An olive oil expert described our oil as "nutty, with cherry and woody accents, hints of green olives and hay straw, and a mild astringency". Visit our shop to order a bottle for yourself or to offer as a gift.
