MADE WITH LOVE

Since 1969, our producer comes from a long history of crafting the finest olive oil and has won a multitude of awards for their efforts.

 

Basking in long hot summers and a mild winter, our olive groves are provided with the perfect climate for quality. Once harvest begins in late October, our olives are cold extracted within 6 hours.

 

That means that the nutrients and delicious flavour of the olives is preserved, giving you the very best of each olive.
