The climate in the Riverland region in South Australia is very similar to the Mediterranean olive and grape producing areas.

The olive trees in ollo’s grove include more than ten superior Tuscan varieties.

ollo’s state-of-the-art cold press processing building is at the very center of the 1000-acre grove. The central location allows harvested olives to be processed within a couple of hours to provide the freshest possible juice (oil).

Quality control standards, as well as the Fresh & Fruity and Mild & Mellow ollo blends, were established by the late Enrico Rossomando, ollo’s Italian Master Blender who had over 20 years of olive oil making experience.


Since its 2005 debut, ollo has accumulated many awards for its Extra Virgin olive oil.
