Waiohiki Olives

Welcome!

At Waiohiki Olives, we have a passion for creating the finest possible extra virgin olive oils from our sun-baked groves of olive trees.

Currently, we grow and press four distinctive cultivars of olives which best suit our unique New Zealand East Coast soils and temperate climate. They are:

  • Leccino
  • Koroneiki
  • Frantoio
  • Pendolino

Our goal is to ensure the freshest and purest possible high quality end products from each variety.

By applying proven scientific methods and sustainable horticultural practices, we focus on creating a sensational taste experience and the highest purity in all of our oils.

We are extremely fortunate that our geographic isolation in New Zealand has prevented the passage of many of the diseases affecting European and Australian olives, in the same way that our wine industry is free from many of the "Old World" blights affecting grapes.

Please take a few minutes to peruse our website and get to know a little bit more about our passion, our methods and our delicious, gourmet-quality olive oils!
