TOP awards since 2010 in bold letters as actually we are so proud of the fact that for the past 5 years we have won those awards- and not one other estate in SA can claim that! Some get a one off award and live off that forever but we CONSISTENTLY share great quality olive oil… hard to get that out!! EVERY bottle of RIO LARGO is the same oil that we get the awards for- we don’t buy in oil for RIO LARGO and that is also something that folk don’t get!
Rio Largo Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a blend of cultivars (Frantoio, Leccino, FS17 and Coratina) grown and pressed on the estate. Each cultivar is handpicked, pressed and stored separately in sealed stainless steel tanks to maintain freshness.
Oils are individually tasted before blending to achieve a mild – but not overly-peppery – fruity and flavoursome oil. The delicious blend has hints of cut grass and green apple, and is suitable for all culinary uses.
