Positioned on a ridge with panoramic views of the picturesque Hunter Valley, Oli Mio Estate exudes Southern European charm – making it the perfect home for one of the region’s most loved olive oil labels.
The landmark property set on 60 acres in Pokolbin, just two hours north of Sydney, features a Tuscan-style private residence overlooking immaculate gardens, which include more than 250 rose bushes, and the estate’s olive grove and vineyard.
A truly special place, Olio Mio Estate’s owners Lawrie and Lee Rawson purchased the property in 2021. A couple with a long-held and deep affection for the Hunter Valley, Lawrie and Lee consider it a privilege to continue the legacy created by the estate’s former owners.
The story behind the name
‘Olio Mio’ is Italian for ‘My Oil’ and in true keeping with the Italian people’s love of sharing food with family and friends, the mission at Olio Mio Estate is to create superior quality Premium Olive Oil for people to share. Il mio olio per te. My oil for you.
The entire process involved in producing Olio Mio Estate’s signature Corregiola Premium Mild Olive Oil and Frantoio Medium Olive Oil is managed by Lawrie and Lee and their small, but dedicated team.
The olives grown in the estate’s 25-acre grove are cold pressed in the state-of-the-art processing plant. The extra olive oil produced is also bottled and packaged on the estate ready for delivery to restaurants, providores and customers across Australia.
The Hunter Valley olive industry
Olio Mio Estate is proud to be part of the Australian olive oil industry and the community of passionate growers in the Hunter Valley producing olive oils that rival the very best from Italy, Spain and Greece.
The 2,500 olive trees on Olio Mio Estate were planted in 1998, close to the start of the Hunter Valley’s burgeoning olive growing industry in the mid-1990s. The mature Corregiola, Frantoio and Nevadillo olive trees, tended and nurtured to optimise yield and flavour from harvest to harvest, are at the foundation of the boutique olive oil company’s success.
Olio Mio Premium Olive Oil is highly regarded for its freshness, taste and quality, and is regularly showcased alongside seasonal ingredients from fellow Hunter Valley producers in dishes created by chefs at the best restaurants in Pokolbin, Sydney and beyond.
