Our Products

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic we were fortunate to operate during our 2020 harvest. We were almost back to normal from last year's drought and we could employ a team of pickers for the whole season. We are very pleased with the result both quantity and quality and we can offer 6 different Extra Virgin Olive Oils this year. Five are monovarietal – Coratina, Delicata, Favolosa, Frantoio, Favolosa and Leccino and there is also an Estate Blend if you want to have the best of each of the five cultivars. The oils are available in 375 ml dark green glass bottles and 1 litre metal canisters.
We make small quantities of natural Kalamata olives. They are cured in salt water for minimum one year and preserved in brine. No preservatives are added. Our Olive Oil Sopas made from 100 percent Portion 36 Olive Oils are a bliss for any skin and especially for those of us with allergies to perfumes or preservatives. We normally stock Lavender, Lavender Buds, Olive Leaf Tea, Fynbos and Cedarwood.. To order any of our products click here.


Coratina 2020

Coratina olive oil is famous for its pepperiness which often can be of chilli strength. A
full bodied olive oil with rich, spicy notes of bitter almonds, artichoke, fresh herbs and a
hint of green tomato. Its intense flavours and bitterness leave an interesting aftertaste.
We recommend Coratina for red meats, for marinating and as a spice. The persisting
flavours makes it ideal for cooking experiments.
