The Rangihoua Estate Tasting Room is the hub of our property and where your olive oil experience begins.
You are welcome to pop in for an extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) tasting during our opening hours.
More comprehensive tours with one of our friendly EVOO ambassadors are available by appointment.
Tours include a short history of our boutique industry, a look at the olive mill machinery and find out all about the process of making our oil through an informative video showing how we harvest and process the olives to make premium EVOO.
The tour culminates in a tasting of our award-winning EVOOs and other tasty treats – and there’s always time to have your questions answered.
A typical tour lasts about half an hour but, if you’re in a rush, you can opt for just a tasting. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the courtyard and lawn, with its backdrop of lush, sub-tropical plantings, our hillside olive grove, and huge stand of New Zealand native bush.
Rangihoua Estate is also the cellar door for Waiheke Island vineyard The Hay Paddock. Wine tastings and sales are available and visitors are welcome to enjoy their tastings in our beautiful garden.
The Rangihoua shop has a comprehensive range of pottery items, olive oil skincare products and other lovely gifts as well as our EVOOs, Herb Spread and Waiheke Manuka honey.
We also have a range of products to buy on our website. Click here to order online.
