The Wairarapa region of New Zealand has a maritime climate different from traditional olive-growing countries, giving us distinctive and complex tasting oils. Olivo is the oldest commercial grove in the Wairarapa region, established in 1991 and has been awarded “Best Brand Award” by Olives New Zealand. Helen and John Meehan took over Olivo in 2003, expanded it, and has been producing and selling award-winning olive oil for 20 years. Olivo is available at high-end grocers across NZ and from their own tasting room in Martinborough. Their intent is to create innovative and top-quality olive oils that pair with excellent food and the great wines that Martinborough produces – olive oils that are boutique, artisanal and gorgeous.
