The best lemon infused oil - traditional Agrumato method.  We LOVE adding this to soups - boosts flavour and is divine!

We are renowned for our lemon pressed extra virgin olive oil. We were the first in Australia to produce this oil by the traditional Italian 'agrumato' method: cold pressing fresh Australian lemons together with our organic olives.
 
With many years of agrumato experience we have perfected the technique. Toscana lemon pressed olive oil has a bold flavour superior to that of an infused oil or one made by adding lemon oil separately at a later time.
 
This zesty oil is best enjoyed drizzled over seafood, salads and vegetables.

From one of Australia's oldest plantations, since 1943.

Single estate grown and produced:
What's their secret? Their family has a passion for quality. They grow their own olives and press their own olives. They maintain control over the whole process, so you can be sure what's grown in their grove is what gets to your kitchen table.


The unique mix of rare varieties, the right climate and the age of their trees is what creates the (unreplicable) quality and flavour of our oil today. The Toscana Olive Plantation was planted in 1943 in the foothills of the Grampians range, making it one of the oldest in Australia. Their trees are comprised of 27 traditional and now rare varieties including Verdale, Boquettier, Mission and the wild olive.

Precious water is conserved by forcing the trees to fight for survival, relying solely on natural rainfall. This is better for their oil too - this is what achieves the beautifully concentrated, excellent olive oil they are known for.

Certified Organic - your guarantee:
Their
NASAA organic certification is your assurance that their olives are grown and processed the way nature intended and are free of toxic chemicals that could damage your health. Unfortunately, the word 'organic' can be too easily used without authenticity, so always look for certified organic produce.
