The Olivery provided an extensive array of taste sensations even for people who are not into olives (like me). My wife loves olives. She enjoyed the visit immensely. It has something for all.

Generous in the tasting but there was no introduction or tour available. Pretty disappointing. As such we just left shortly. Only managed to see a few olives on the tree.

Thanks for your visit and feedback. Olives are harvested in May, hence the lack of them on the trees at the time of your visit. Regards Geoff More

Lots to see in the little shop on site at the olive grove. There are samples of the oils and dressings and olives of course (the Christmas Olives were different but nice!) Try the Cabernet Drizzle especially! The many flavours are fresh and mouthwatering There are other bits and pieces from other producers in the shop as well but it... More

Very interesting shop with different flavoured olive oil and other products for sale. You can also sample the different types of olive oil before buying. We bought the roasted garlic flavoured olive oil and it was yummy, especially when dipped with bread. Tell the staff you are travelling and they will bubble wrap the bottles.

While passing thru Havelock North we tracked down the Telegraph Hill Olivery and made a stop. Their olives are delicious as are several of their oils and drizzles. My choices were the Manuka Smoked Olives and the Garlic Olives. They offer samples of all their products. An interesting program they promote is the sale of an olive treee from their... More

The lady who welcomed us spent a lot of time explaining the tasting room experience and certainly seemed to know her stuff. We ended up purchasing a few things, but that was to be expected. Could have spent a lot more besides.

We visited the Olivery on the recommendation of relatives who had bought some of their products on previous visits. We were pleased that we did as we liked their products and bought quite a few things. We would not have gone there if they had not recommended it as we don't like olives but they have lots of other things... More
