Our Rio Largo Premium extra virgin olive oil comes from Frantoio, Leccino and Coratina varietals in the Breede River Valley in the Fairest Cape of South Africa. Our olives are hand-picked and pressed the same day using cold extraction methods to ensure the oil is always fresh and its unique flavors are preserved.
Rio Largo is a family affair, owned and managed by Nick and Brenda Wilkinson. It is situated in the Cape on the southern tip of Africa in the Karoo semi-desert where the weather is just perfect for olive growing. Attention to detail is not negotiable.
