Above: Frantoio means olive press in Italian. At Frantoio in Mill Valley (Marin County, California), not only do the owners bottle their own olive oil, but they actually have a working olive press in the restaurant (note the press at the top of the image; via the Frantoio Facebook). You can see a 360° image of the stunning dining room on Google here.
What a thrill for us to read this review of Frantoio in Mill Valley by Brooke Jackson in the Marin Independent Journal!
It’s always one of the greatest rewards to learn that a critic tasted one of Cantele’s wines and liked it.
But the fact that Frantoio is one of the coolest restaurants in the U.S. sweetens the deal.
There are people who go into the restaurant business to become famous. Some even go into the trade to make money. But then there are others who become restaurateurs because they love food and wine and they love the people who love food and wine.
From its superb menu and excellent Italian- and Californian-focused wine list to the working olive press on the floor of the restaurant and the chic décor, it’s clear that the team behind Frantoio belongs to the latter group.
We’re proud to share the news that Frantoio pours Cantele (currently the Amativo).
