The Balingup Summer Long Table dinner was held on Saturday 7 February 2015. Approximately 150 people were treated to a gourmet delight by seven chefs delivering seven spectacular courses all using quality local ingredients- ours among them!

Simply stunning!
Thank you to Katrina Lane from Taste of Balingup for organising such a wonderful and successful event.
Due to popular demand, we have now sold out of our medal winning 2014 Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Our next harvest should be good, so keep an eye out for our 2015 oil. This should be available for sale in September 2015.
Rokewood Olive Grove has been awarded silver medals for their 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 Extra Virgin Olive Oils at the Perth Royal Show and/or the South West Olive Competition.
These awards were for our varietal blends of Frantoio, New Norcia Mission and Leccino. This continued excellence places Rokewood Olive Grove at the forefront of the gourmet market, with continuous fresh high quality oils guaranteed.
This year, the judges stated that the 2014 Rokewood Extra Virgin Olive Oil had a ” fresh tomato and herbs on the nose. A fruity palate with a mild, fine peppery finish. A good balanced oil.”
In 2014, we again contracted a tree shaker to harvest the Leccino, Frantoio and Mission olives for oil. We produced 250 litres of extra Virgin Olive Oil- most of which is already sold!
We now only have a small number of 500ml bottles of extra virgin olive oil for sale. So, be quick if you want some for Christmas!
For the restaurant and catering businesses, we now offer our extra virgin olive oil in bulk, with the option of a 10 litre cask or a 20 litre drum.
Rokewood Kalamata Olives are all picked, sorted and processed by hand. In 2014, we extended our harvest by picking olives on a number of nearby properties. We now have 1200kg of table olives ready in a range of varieties- Kalamata, Manzanilla, Piqual and Leccino. All are done in the Greek style for black olives with each variety having a slightly different taste and appearance. All are delicious!
We provide a guaranteed ongoing provision, delivery and service to restaurants and outlets- ensuring a continuous supply of quality olives. Please contact us to discuss your individual needs.
