At Rangihoua, our mission is to educate Aotearoa and the world about the difference excellent extra virgin olive oil makes to cooking and to life. We put our heart and souls into every bottle, placing a real focus on quality. It’s this commitment to uncompromising quality that sees our oils winning Gold and Silver medals year after year — setting the bar high for New Zealand extra virgin olive oils.
Extra virgin olive oil can enhance any dish and offer a great range of health benefits. A bottle of EVOO can be the perfect gift for him or her, whoever the foodie in your life may be.

A grassy, peppery aroma with hints of toasted nuts. Initially the taste is creamy pine nuts then green capsicum, rocket with a black pepper finish. The anti-oxidant levels are sure to be very high.

Waiheke Blend 2021
Freshly mowed grass, mint and artichoke is the aroma. Tastes like apples, mint and pepper with a creamy base. The finish is persistent black pepper. The anti-oxidant levels are sure to be very high.
Initially, this blend was created only from the Olives grown at Stonyridge Vineyard but now cuttings from these trees have been established at Rangihoua and one other grove on Waiheke to create this most unique blend. The trees are believed to be Verdale, Mission and Ascalano.
The oil has a good creamy finish and is delicious for dipping, aioli and on green beans, asparagus, mesclun salad and white meat. A versatile EVOO which can be used in most culinary applications.
