Extra Virgin OLive Oil

Olive trees have been cultivated for around 6000 years, and along with wine grapes and wheat they make up the staple crops on which Western civilisation was founded.

To make the highest quality - extra virgin - the best olives of the year, picked at the peak of ripeness which happens in April and May each year in the Hunter Valley.

The olives are crushed and the water and solids are removed leaving a golden green oil high in antioxidants, low in polyphenols and tasting delicious.

Extra Virgin olive oil is best consumed fresh, with only around 7% of the world's olive oil making it to this high standard.

Belarna Grove olive oil is seldom sourced from one particular grove or variety. There are around 130,000 olive trees in the Hunter Valley and many varieties are planted. Belarna Grove Extra Virgin olive oil is a blend from selected groves and varieties created to bring out the best possible flavours.
