Olive experts, help!

I have very little olive knowledge, and strangely, Google is not helping much for once. My sister once brought back a container of olives for me from Napa Valley, and they were the yummiest things I've ever eaten. I've never liked olives because I thought they were too salty and strong-tasting. But these were nutty and buttery and wonderful. Light green in color, with seeds intact. What's the name for this type of olive, so I can buy them in vast quantities? I remember I couldn't walk past the fridge without popping one in my mouth...
