le voyageur - quality new zealand olive oil
Outstanding Olive Oil from the Hawke’s Bay on the East Coast of the North Island. This is a stunning region with famous vineyards, fruit-filled orchards and rich agricultural land. Its mild Mediterranean climate and productive soils make it a food and wine lovers’ paradise with the latest taste sensations coming from the regions flourishing olive groves. Wherever quality grapes and wine are produced, olives will do just as well. Hawke’s Bay has the sunshine hours, rainfall (with irrigation, as required) and soil profiles to be New Zealand’s premier olive growing region.
The Olives we use are sited in the golden wine triangle of Hawke’s Bay (seven kilometres from Hastings adjacent to major wine company vineyards). Hawke’s Bay is internationally recognised as New Zealand’s superior food and wine producing region. From the fertile plains, high country pasture, bountiful ocean and lush river valleys comes a diverse range of growing conditions and micro-climates. Hawke’s Bay is home to some of New Zealand’s largest food production and processing companies.
