Wattle Hill Olives now produce dukkah to go with their Extra Virgin Olive Oil and balsamic salad dressing/dipping sauces.
Wattle Hill Olives are justifiably proud of the extra virgin olive oil they have produced. Awards include 2013 National Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition Gold and 2014 AOA National EVOO Show Silver for their Boutillan.
Tasmania has rapidly established itself as a producer of top class extra virgin olive oil due to a combination of ideal climate and soils. Extra virgin is the highest quality olive oil and is unrefined, with the oil mechanically (as opposed to chemically) extracted from the best quality olives.
Available 50g plastic containers.
Ingredients: pistachio, hazelnuts, sesame seeds, herbs, spices, salt.
Wattle Hill Olives is the result of George and Veronica Tahu’s hard work. Their twenty acre grove overlooks the Bass Highway at Latrobe in Tasmania’s north west. They have approximately 2100 olive trees that were planted 2000-2007. Being relatively young, the trees are still increasing in production each year, with there being three oil varieties and five table varieties. In 2014, the yield was approximately 10 tonnes, with 900kg being processed for table olives.
George and Veronica look forward to working their olive grove full time in retirement. Currently, they both juggle jobs, the olive grove and selling their products at markets.
Wattle Hill Olives has a quality assurance program in place.
