Olive Oil Tasting, New Zealand

As part of our tour on Waiheke Island, we got to visit an olive grove to learn about the olive industry in New Zealand.  The place we checked out was Rangihoua Estate, which has been around since the late ’90s.

We learned about the entire olive oil making process from picking the olives through processing them to putting the final product in a bottle.

After that we got to sample!  Some of the oils were very nice, some, for my taste were ok.  Overall, great experience learning about everything and adding to the wine tour day.
