Today we come bearing BIG news!Taralinga Estate Olive Grove has officially launched!
1st of May 2015 is our official commencement date and we are beyond excited.
- Our website has launched - www.taralinga.com.au
- Our Facebook page is active and already has followers
- Our logo, labels and brand identity are finalised
- And our Pieralisi Press has taken initial bookings, with a number of Mornington Peninsula growers set to deliver their olives very soon.
In 2015, we will focus our attention on Mornington Peninsula olive growers who, until now, have had to ship their fruit long distances for pressing. The shorter distance to our own Pieralisi press, located in the hills behind Shoreham, will mean time savings for them but as importantly, a better quality olive oil – given pressing will happen closer to actual picking.
Later in the year, we plan to launch our Consumer Brand and sell our premium-grade first pressing extra virgin olive oil online to connoisseurs.
To ensure our inaugural harvest season is a good one, our friends from Pieralisi in Italy have flown out to Taralinga Estate their expert oil maker to oversee the press’ operations. We are delighted to welcome Giuseppe Levantinoto our Grove.
Whether you are a Grower or a Consumer, we hope you enjoy Taralinga Estate Olive Grove’s service as much as the taste of what we believe will be the best quality olive oil in Australia – and possibly the world.
Welcome to the Taralinga family!
Sam Tarascio Snr.
