Situated in the picturesque Paarl region of the Western Cape, the 500-hectare Vesuvio Estates is home to more than 100 000 well-loved olive trees (some trees older than 25 years) rooted in South African soil; the cold extraction processing facility is state of the art Italian technology.
To produce our internationally-acclaimed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Vesuvio:
- automated the pruning and picking, selecting the finest olives nurtured on our Estate
- No human contact from tree to consumer
- cold-extracts the oil within 12 hours
This fast method ensures freshness and acidity levels that are favourably moderated, maintaining the fantastic health benefits of the olive. It is also the reason for Vesuvio Extra Virgin Olive Oil’s outstanding taste – a perfect balance of fruitiness, the hint of appropriately attractive bitterness and optimal pungency, with slight intriguing variations according to climate and season.
