Olive Oil

La Barre Olive Oil proudly produced in Australia.

La Barre is in the fortunate position to produce olives on two farms with very different climates and growing conditions. The different locations produce olives with a great variety of attributes and thereby gives La Barre the opportunity to produce olive oils with specific qualities and flavours, and of equal importance create a consistently high quality product from year to year.

Hardwicke Grove was established in 1999 and is located in the emerging cool climate wine country of Yass and Murrubateman. The grove was planted down to Frantoio, Leccino, 1-77, Boutillion, and Lecquere. The region is well known for its cold winters and pleasant warm summers similar to areas in Tuscany. These conditions create oils with intense and robust flavours.

Sterling Olive Grove and Cowra Olive Grove were established at Billimari in central west New South Wales. Billimari is also becoming a well known viticultural area producing area.. Olives. Among the 30,000 trees planted were the varieties Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino, Coratina, FS 17, Piccholine, Koraniki, Picual and Arbequina. The Professor Fontanazza identified this region as being very similar to central Sicily an area famous throughout history for making some of the best oils in the world. Oils from Billimari tend to be sweeter and intense fresh frangrances.
