Bay Shrimp Tartines with Olio Nuovo

It's that magical time of year - our first of the season and most anticipated Olio Nuovo is ready to be bottled and labeled.

Social Club members have early access for pre-orders and the oil will be released and available in stores on December 6th. I always think about and appreciate this oil similar to the way I appreciate a perfectly ripe peach - the visual is extraordinary, the aroma intoxicating and the flavor delivers on the promise. Use and enjoy this seasonal oil lavishly as you would any fleeting wonder. This tartine is a showcase for how well McEvoy Ranch Olio Nuovo compliments fresh seafood. Try the recipe with our local Dungeness crab, as well. Indulge and enjoy! Pour yourself a glass of our newly released La Cruz Chardonnay as a perfect pair with the Tartine!
