Olive Grove

Alongside the Brothers McLaren Vale vineyard, sits one of the finest olive groves in the country. Fruit from this Grove provide olives and oil to the Lloyd Brothers range of gourmet products.

With parts of the Grove dating back to the late 1800's, it is recognized as one of the original Olive Groves in South Australia, having provided cuttings of Verdale and more recently Kalamata rootstock to the South Australia olive industry.

The Lloyd Brothers continue to maintain the Grove using traditional techniques and organic farming practices. 

Choosing to hand pick the Kalamata olives to prevent bruising and only using natural techniques in the brining process, ensures the olives retain their structure and fruit sweetness. 

The olive varieties that are ideally suited for oil production, are manually harvetsed using beaters, before being cold pressed within a few hours of being picked. This ensues that the olive oil captures and retains the flavours of the olive and guarantees only the highest quality EVOO is created.
