Description:

Located in the western foothills of Australia’s Great Dividing Range, ALTO's remote location has proved ideally suited to oleaculture and the vision of proprietor Robert Armstrong, who established the grove in 1999. It has quickly become a dynamic family enterprise producing a diverse portfolio of exceptional quality Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Table Olives. The picturesque estate comprises 15,000 olive trees of different European origin, each chosen for particular attributes – suitability to the climate, oil yield, quality and consistency. 

Naturally fermented using kiln-dried sea salt and filtered rainwater and finished with Agridulce-style Chardonnay vinegar. The ALTO Kalamata selection features large purple thin-skinned fleshy olives – for many the supreme eating variety. Originating from Greece, kalamatas are distinguished by their texture and flavour intensity. They are the perfect choice with pre-dinner drinks, added to mezze platters, or a flaky pastry rabbit pie.
