Hihi Olive Estate

Hihi Olive Estate is owner operated by Colin and Lynette Wilson and extends over approx. 40 acres of sloping hillside alongside Mangonui Harbour / Doubtless Bay in the far north of New Zealand. We grow and pick several cultivars of olives, including Koroneiki, Leccino, Pendolino, Ascalando and Frantoio, along with Northland's unique J5 olive.

We are one of the three members of New Zealand Olive Growers and Exporters Ltd - a production and marketing company with the brand name First Drop.

Tours of our olive grove and pressing room are available by appointment.

Olive oil processing

Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil is cold-pressed in our own boutique olive press, filtered and bottled on our estate. We also press and process large or small quantities of olives for other growers in our licensed facility - please contact us if you are interested in having us process your olives.

Our single cultivar olive oils are of the highest quality and packaged in 250ml dark-glass bottles.

Our oils exceed the International Olive Oil Standard and meet the stringent Olives New Zealand Certification criteria. Always look for the red ONZ Certification sticker - proof of quality!

We are producers of award winning olive oil. Our Koroneiki oil won Gold Medal in the 2008 Los Angeles International Competition and the First Drop blend won Bronze Medal. Previously, our Koroneiki won the 2006 Gold Medal from ONZ and Silver Medal at the 2007 Los Angeles International Competition.

Our oil is classified medium style and will leave your palate with an intense peppery, grassy sensation. It is used by many of the leading chefs in Northland.
