A renegade approach and a love of the land inspired our Founder Nan McEvoy to purchase this 550-acre sprawling ranch in West Marin County in 1990.
Inspired by her love of Tuscan olive oil, Nan engaged Dr. Maurizio Castelli, a leading authority on agriculture, to recommend the best olive varieties for our unique setting. Fast-forward twenty years and McEvoy Ranch is one of the preeminent leaders in certified organic, extra virgin olive oil. A favorite of chefs – both at home and in restaurants that favor the farm-to-table approach.
Certified by the Leaping Bunny organization, our ODE Natural Beauty Collection is infused with 100% organic olive oil and botanicals. The products, inspired by the scents and aromas on the estate, can be found in exclusive spas throughout the globe and in premium retailers.
To maintain a healthy balance with our natural surroundings only 15% of our acreage is planted. This purposeful strategy aligns with our strong commitment to ensure we provide good land stewardship for our olive orchards, grape vineyards, and other fruits, vegetables, and flora grown on the estate.
Beginning with the 2010 vintage, we handcrafted limited-edition wine offeringsshowcasing the impact of the Petaluma Gap’s breezes and our distinct soil. In keeping with our history, we grow several Mediterranean varietals in addition to Pinot Noir and Viognier.
Nion McEvoy, Nan’s son, became CEO in 2014. In 2016, McEvoy Ranch introduced Saimuun wines showcasing non-estate vineyard blocks as well as expanded our Culinary Collection. The first twenty-five years were amazing. We are just as excited for the next chapter in our never-ending story.
