Mechanical harvesting enable us to harvest each olive cultivar at its optimum stage of ripeness and to limit the time from tree to factory. Within 6 hours the olives are cold extracted with our state of the art Pieralisi Protoreattore and Leopard 6 decanter.

 

By harvesting the olives at the optimum level of ripeness, minimizing the time from tree to processing, utilizing the latest technology and limiting exposure to oxygen, high polyphonol levels are ensured. Various cultivars are carefully blended to produce all 3 styles of extra virgin olive oil: Intense, Medium and Delicate. You won’t find a neutral or bland tasting olive oil at Willow Creek.

 

The extra-ordinary health benefits of extra virgin olive oil are captured
in polyphenols: antioxidants and anti-inflammatory micro nutrients, like oleocanthal - proven to reduce inflammatory diseases, neurodegenerative diseases and cancers.
The more intense or robust the extra virgin olive oil is (i.e. the more bitter and peppery it tastes), the higher the polyphenol.

 

Our dark glass bottles and specially produced PET bottles with UV Filter and Oxygen Barrier, protects the extra virgin olive oil against light oxidation in order to maintain the optimum shelf life and health properties of the product. The unique Squeeze bottle in which our medium intensity Estate Blend is packaged, has proven to be the consumer’s favourite as it allows one to control the exact amount to be used while the bottle is light, unbreakable and bio-degradable. 3 Litre tins with pull out spouts offers easy handling for high volume consumers.

 

A choice of 13 cultivars allows for the blending of complex flavour profiles in all 3 styles of Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Delicate, Medium and Intense. Flavoured olive oils further extends our range. By adding 1% of concentrated flavour oil to 99% Extra Virgin Olive Oil, we’re able to offer the healthiest, most flavoursome salad dressing and a stockpile pantry item with authentic flavour captured in nutrient rich olive oil for when you don’t have the real ingredient on hand. Our range of balsamic vinegars, olies, tapenade and olive pesto’s compliments Willow Creek’s Extra Virgin Olive Oils.

 

The Nuy Valley offers lime rich soil, a typical Mediterranean climate with low average rainfall, but access to irrigation water - a terroir that lays the foundation for the production of healthy, flavoursome olives.
