The Olive Nest & 1838 Wines
The Olive Nest & 1838 Wines, combines two sublime tastes located in the beautiful Mudgee Region.
Mudgees' climate with its hot days, cool summer nights and its cold winter is ideally suited for the production of high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO). These conditions together with the red clay loam over limestone soil is also perfect for the production of high quality red wines.
Our Olive Oil is sourced on site from our 4,000 tree grove. We harvest our olives very carefully and in a way to ensure the fruit is not bruised, we then press the olives within 24 hours of harvest. This ensures the highest quality, fresh, tasty and herbaceous Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Our oil has been chosen by Harvey Nichols in London to showcase the best Australian Olive Oils.
Our Wine. We have one of the smallest commercial vineyards in Mudgee. Over 2 hectares of vines produces 8 tonnes of grapes in a good season, but nothing in a bad season. This lets us focus on producing high quality wines every year. Our wines are produced by the experienced French wine makers Chris Derrez and Lucy Maddox using a mixture of old and new French Oak barrels. The soil type and climate in Mudgee lends itself best to the red wines which we are our focus. All our vines are bunch thinned to ensure our grapes are fully flavorsome and in optimal condition to produce the high quality wine that we demand. Visitors to our tasting rooms are able to see the press in action (in pressing season), are shown how to taste olive oils and have the difference in Olive oils explained. A total Olive experience.
A visit to The Olive Nest provides a unique experience, a chance to see how Olive Oil is produced together with tastings of their award winning oils and wines.
If you are unable to visit, all their products are available at their online shop.
