My new favorite olive oil is Seka Hills. It's estate-grown, milled and processed by the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation Indians in the Capay Valley. The Arbequina olive oil has a floral and citrus flavor followed by a nice balance of bitterness at the end, which works well in sweet as well as savory recipes.

Chief Creative Officer of Serious Eats, J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, was first introduced to Séka Hills Olive Oil by Jesse Ziff-Cool, Chef at Flea Street Market. The Séka Hills Arbequina blew his mind - and instantly became his favorite Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

This is what Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wine (subscription required) had to say about the Séka Hills 2012 Viognier:
Here is Viognier at its juicy and accessible best with lots of fresh flowers and peachy fruit to the fore. It is moderately full-bodied and a touch soft at the edges, but it is no slave to ripeness and steers clear of the heat that its more dramatic cousins too often show with a crisping, citrusy bite coming on at the end. While it gets good marks for balance, it is a wine that we would choose to drink sooner than later, and its mannerly style makes its easy to pair with a wide range of foods.

The Capay Valley is recognized as a "rural paradise" in an article published by the Bay Area Newsgroup. The Séka Hills label, including its wine, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and agricultural products, is noted among the valley's outstanding products, as a result of the rich soil and ideal climate.
