How it began
In fact it was a relaxing Sunday drive through the Wairarapa in 1999 that sparked dream behind Olea Estate began.
Olea olive oil is about no compromise. No corners are cut to produce this olive oil. Taste, quality and purity of the oil are always first.
The oil is produced from a single source only from olives on the estate and not mixed with other groves.
Once the olive is picked it is pressed within 24 hours so the fragile olive does not begin to deteriorate, again this benefits taste.
The oil is cold pressed at room temperature like ‘true’ virgin oil. Nothing is added to take away from the taste. As a result what is in the bottle is 100% pure.
Over the years our meticulous care and love for making the best product has definitely paid including our most recent awards.
