One of the BEST South African Extra Virgin Olive Oils
…and it’s not just us saying so! There’s a reason we’re so proud to be partnering with Peter Unite & Daniel Munzvenga of Zoetigheyd Farm to create TRUE EVOO, our very own brand of extra virgin olive oil. In 2020, under the Zoetigheid farm label, their olive oil won numerous awards, 4 of them gold, more than any other producer in the country.
What We Love About TRUE EVOO
It’s not just the blend of Frantoio, Leccino and Coratina varieties that produce such rich, complex flavours with hints of green and ripe olives, artichoke, olive leaf and almond.
We love the principles behind their farming practices: remaining attuned to Nature, using organic growing techniques while carefully monitoring the quality and health of the soil. The producers also pay special attention to cold pressing the olives and storage of the oil.
Zoetigheyd lies at the foot of the Rooiberg in the Breede River Valley. Kissed by abundant sunshine, rich alluvial soil, and the sweetness of the Renosterveld, this farm produces olives of the very highest grade. Olives are harvested in the cool morning air and immediately pressed, resulting in the exquisite flavours of the olive grove arriving in your kitchen.
All of this bounty comes to you directly from the farm; there’s so much more than just olive oil in the bottle.
The beautifully shaped 750ml bottle contains cold-extracted olive oil blended from 3 different cultivars, offering a mild-bodied oil with a fruity aroma ideal for use on salads as well as medium-temperature cooking.
