Franschhoek Olive Oil Company
Situated in the heart of the Franschhoek valley, Clermont is home to the Franschhoek Olive Oil Company. Our award winning extra virgin olive oil is pressed and bottled on Clermont from olives grown in the Franschhoek Valley
The olive orchard at Clermont consists of mostly Frantoio with a few Leccino and Coratina trees representing the classic Tuscan varieties.
Only carefully selected, healthy olives, handpicked in their prime as they begin to ripen and milled without delay, are used to prepare this peppery and delicately fruity oil.
The olive pressing season varies from year to year but tends to run from April to June. If you are in Franschhoek during the season enquire at reception to see how we produce extra virgin olive oil by coming and doing a tour of the mill.
