EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL FROM WAGGA WAGGA AUSTRALIA

Who we are

W₂O olive oil commenced as a family project in 1997 on our farm “Kallewanda”, located just outside of Wagga Wagga in south-western NSW.

We have fertile soils, ideal climate and ample water from the Murrumbidgee River to grow our trees. Olive varieties were selected to suit our Mediterranean conditions and we grow Correggiola, Pendolino, Hardy’s Mammoth and Manzanillo. Plantings of additional new varieties including Koroneiki and Picual are planned for 2023 to adapt to changing climatic conditions.

A major factor determining the quality of olive oil is the time between picking and milling. So, this year, in 2022, we began pressing our oil on farm using our new Italian mill. It has been a steep and exciting learning curve and we were thrilled to have won gold and silver medals for our oils this year.

We are very mindful of our carbon footprint and immediately following harvest, our fruit is transported directly to the solar powered mill on farm. Prunings are mulched and returned to the grove and mill waste is composted. We are proud of the fact that for every litre of olive oil produced, it is calculated that four kilos of carbon is sequestered.

What we grow

Our main variety is Correggiolo with Pendolino, Hardysmammoth and Manzanillo rounding off the grove.

The Correggiola trees grown by W₂Olives have been DNA confirmed as matching the Correggiola of Tuscany, Italy. The Fruit is small in size, ripens late in the season, and has a very high oil content. Correggiola produces regular heavy crops. Although the tree has medium to high vigour, the mature tree is generally low at about 8 metres. Correggiola is said to be the benchmark for olive oil in Italy.
