“Radcliffe's Social Club Event - GREAT!!”
Review of A Taste of Italy - CLOSED

A Taste of Italy
More attraction details
Attraction details
Fee: Yes
Owner description: When in Hanmer Springs do something special and experience ‘A Taste of Italy’ in the middle of traditional sheep and cattle high-country. Top quality extra virgin olive oil is grown & produced from 1300 olive trees on land that was once only used for grazing. 26 acres of high country pasture has been transformed by the Prestons into a landscape rivaling that found in Tuscany. Taste delicious freshly pressed olive oils from around New Zealand, and learn about the different ways you can use this healthy New Zealand-made product. Go for a guided tour around the grove followed with a comparative oil tasting and short description of New Zealand extra virgin olive oils, and then be seated to a generous sized luncheon of antipasto platters served with local wine. Book ‘A Taste of Italy’ in Hanmer Springs and transport yourself.Advance booking required.

“Radcliffe's Social Club Event - GREAT!!”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

We were spending the weekend in Hanmer as a Social Club event and decided from various brochers that the Oil Grove tour might be something different to try. It was all of that and so much more. You are treated to some of the best scenic views ever, the grounds and oil grove are very relaxing to spend time in and wander round. Our hosts Chris and Lisa, with special mention of the two special four legged hosts, made us feel very welcome and the whole time were very laid back. The outside dinning area is fantastic along with the food and wine. There own brew of olive oil is a must to get on your way out as well

“All of us had a fab time”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

My husband and I went along with our children and we all had a great time. The kids loved the pizzas and there was loads of space for them to explore while we relaxed with our food and a glass of wine.
