Its then to the special tasting area where you will be taken through what olive oil judges look for in an oil and how to taste an oil to make your own assessment. Its then time for the big reveal of this year's oils including our famous Hardys Mammoth and King Kalamata oils. Participants will be the first to taste these oils before they are put on sale. All participants go home with a Hardys Mammoth oil in a Gooramadda bag. This is bound to be a memorable day! Click here to book. or call (02) 6026 5658 for more details.
What is an Extra Virgin Olive Oil? What foods work best with which oils? A visit to Gooramadda Olives is a guided experience through not just our own olives and oils but a discovery of the wonderful produce of our region.
Think of a winery cellar door and expand upon it. You don't just taste the produce but you learn how best to utilise it. The biggest complaint we get from visitors is they didn't allow enough time. We are thrilled when visitors arrive thinking this is just a shop and leave thanking for the virtual tour we take them on through the produce.
We grow 11 varieties of award winning table olives and varietal extra virgin olive oil. Gooramadda olives are hand picked. The day the fruit is picked is the day it goes into barrel to start its natural fermentation process preserving the full rich flavours of the olive. Our award winning extra virgin olive oils are all cold pressed.
Our table olives and varietal olive oils are available for tasting and purchase at the Cellar Door which is onsite. We also mail order and send our olives Australia wide.
Gooramadda Olives is located at 1468 Gooramadda Rd, Rutherglen Victoria 3685, just a short 8 minute drive from Rutherglen town centre in North East Victoria, Australia. The Cellar Door is open Saturdays, Sundays 10am until 5pm. Mid week opening is by prior arrangement.
