Olio Bello Story
Olio Bello Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is grown and pressed on our 320 acre property situated in the beautiful Margaret River region of Western Australia's South West. We are surrounded by dramatic natural beauty where our olives thrive in an ideal Mediterranean climate and our award winning olive oils reflect a long-term labour of love and commitment to sustainable agriculture and organic farming principles.
Our story began with an extraordinary vision when an American couple, Jack & Sue Witkin, searched the world to find the prefect place to create a sustainable retreat and found it in an old dairy farm in Cowaramup – now Olio Bello. They developed a vibrant ecosystem and revegetated the property planting thousands of native trees, shrubs and an endless organic orchard. Olives were introduced in 1992 and their dream became a reality.
Since then, 10,000 trees comprising 14 different varieties have been planted. Our first olives were harvested in 1998 and Olio Bello has steadily gained industry recognition to become one of the most awarded producers of organic extra virgin olive oil in Australia.
Today, proudly West Australian owned, Olio Bello offers a dynamic tasting room, gourmet retail outlet, deli-line, beauty products, popular alfresco café, weddings and tours.
As our name suggests, Olio Bello produces simply beautiful oil. Visitors from around the world continue to discover how soil, climate, tradition and passion, combine to create world-class products and a signature Margaret River gourmet and eco-tourism experience.
Our commitment to the original vision remains and grows with every year.
