History

History

In 1839 William and Elizabeth Oliver traveled to South Australia from Scotland. Their passage from Scotland to Adelaide was aboard the sailing ship “Delhi’. Sight unseen, they committed to purchase an 80 acre section of land in McLaren Vale from the South Australia Company who had recently surveyed land from the new South Australian colony for free settlers. A homestead was built, wells dug, sheep and cattle were raised, orchards and vineyards were planted, and six generations later, we are still farming the same land. Olives have always been planted on the Taranga property, so we work with local second generation olive oil maker Dominic Scarfo who uses a centrifuge press, allowing us to create this beautiful Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
