Amuri Estate is an established olive grove with 1,300 olive trees. The five different varieties planted are sourced from the Tuscany region of Italy and also from Spain and France. The grove’s highest altitude (at 400 m, possibly the highest olive grove in New Zealand), free draining soil, gently sloping land irrigated by a spring-fed stream, and its north facing aspect are the perfect ingredients for the unique character of Amuri Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
