Welcome to The Olivina

The Olivina has an essential place in the history of California olive oil. An early pioneer in the California olive oil industry, Julius Paul Smith, carved out 2000 acres of the beautiful Livermore Valley and committed the land to cultivating wine california olives grapes, walnuts and olives. Mr. Smith’s ranch was aptly dubbed Olivina and a stone gateway with "Olivina" in wrought iron marked the entrance to his fruitful property.
