After the grape harvest, we have the olive harvest which we recently completed. A big harvest is usually followed by a small one the following year and that certainly was the case this year: with 700kg of olives we only produced 26 litres of olive oil!

As far as we know, all the producers in the region had very small or no production and we believe there will also be a shortfall for our mediterranean neighbours. There definitely won’t be enough oil for everyone next year!

However, we still have some bottles of 2013 left so we encourage you to buy what remains at the 2014 price as long as there is stock available by clicking here or emailing us.
