A cool climate environment and sandy ground with lots of sunshine and a prolonged ripening period are key to Camilo's production of premium extra virgin olive oils. They ensure their olives are harvested within hours then processed immediately and the processing is done by artisans who really care that the oil is not just extra virgin olive oil - but that it is beautiful!
Don't take their word for the quality though: They have won best of class internationally and in Australia plus championships and for the fourth year running (2011-2014) have been listed in Flos Olei - a guide to the world of extra virgin olive oil. Written in Italy after a global contest, the book (in English and Italian) is THE guide to olive oil. The author, Marco Oreggia, told The Olive Oil Times when the 2014 edition was published that it covered 'the world's 500 most important groves'.
Camilo Olives have also made a name for themselves with their unique medal-winning olive salts, vegetarian black tapenade and other products that include a honey balsamic glaze with honey from bees at Camilo.
They love visitors so please give them a ring and they will try to accommodate you and guide you. Make sure you come from the Shelford-Bannockburn end of Bakers Lane unless you have a 4WD.
Camilo Olives does olive tastings for free and for a fee Joan McGovern will run a master class in olive oil pending her availability. The cellar door is basic but welcoming and they would love to see you here.

This is a farm and the processing / packaging shed is basic. When they are not harvesting or processing (from about July to April) there is a concrete apron in front of the shed entrance where vehicles may park to allow people in wheelchairs or on walking sticks to visit inside the shed. The concrete apron provides reasonably easy access to people in wheelchairs.This access is not physically possible during harvest because it is used by forklift, tractor and other vehicles delivering olives and collecting goods.
