Loopline OlivesSituated in Opaki in New Zealand’s Wairarapa region Loopline Olives specialises in the highest quality, single variety Certified Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO). All our 2019 oils are award winning.
Loopline’s 2018 Picholene won a Gold Medal at the New York International Olive Oil Competitionas noted in the 2019 Official Index of the World’s Best Olive Oils.
Certified Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) - Five olive varieties grow at Loopline, flourishing in the hot dry summer days, cool nights and crisp winters.
Oil is produced from four of the varieties Picual, Picholene, Leccino and Frantoio each picked and pressed separately to celebrate this special fruit juice’s individual qualities.
Like fine wine, each oil vintage reflects not only it’s Spanish, French or Italian varietal but also the growing season’s weather patterns.
Unlike wine however, olive oil is best consumed as fresh as possible for full health benefits and fruitiness.
Loopline’s owner Stephen Davies Howard feels a huge responsibility for these special trees that live for hundreds of years. He is keen to keep achieving the award winning quality of all Loopline Extra Virgin Olive Oils and committed to best-practice in all stages of production.
Over the years many awards have been won across all varieties of Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced from the Loopline Grove. International judges to the Olives New Zealand Awards awarded Loopline olive oils Best in Class 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018 and Best in Show in 2014, 2017 and 2018.
