Olea Estate

By Olives New Zealand Inc

Since 1999, Charles and Kay Chinnaiyah have had a passion for producing olives of consistent quality. Their grove comprises 2,000 trees and is fully integrated from pruning and harvesting to processing on their own mill. Olea olive oil is about no compromise. The oil is produced from a single source only from olives on the estate and not mixed with other groves. In 2019 Olea Estate Picual won Gold, Best in Class and Reserve Best in Show at the New Zealand Extra Virgin Olive Oi Awards.
