Mt Direction Olives
Specialists in Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
In 1999 in the Tippogoree Hills of the Tamar Valley, Sean and Chrissie Ahern planted 2000 olive trees. About 1400 Frantoio [a Tuscan variety] and 600 Manzanillo [a Spanish variety] now form the basis for mount Direction's olive oil production. Early harvest produces a robust Frantoio and a more mellow, buttery Manzanillo but as harvest progresses both oils develop more fruity characteristics .These late season oils lend themselves to flavouring. Our garlic and chilli infused oils are among our most popular whilst our Lime Agrumato is mostly presold to last years customers. Oil production takes place at our own mill. Our vertically integrated company [ from paddock to package] allows us to make the claim: "from tree to tank in three hours".
