About
At Darling Olives, we not only produce great-tasting olives, but also offer a great tasting experience. For half an hour we will keep you entertained so you can discover our range of delicious products in our tasting room. You can look forward to learning more about how to buy a good olive oil, tasting different styles of olives, jams, oils and even olive chocolate all while enjoying a taste of our two exclusive wines (when in stock.) It is a lovely experience and an absolute taste-adventure (even for non-olive eaters).

We went to Darling with no expectations. Darling Olive tasting experience blew us away. A well priced tasting experience and an investment in their business made our day. We will definitely register with their on-line shop. It was fabulous and definitely a highlight of our West Coast road trip.

The visit was a most pleasant surprise. The horses, pot bellied pigs and chickens were there to greet us. Once inside the characterful building we were treated to a fantastic array of olive products tempting us to buy. We had the "cellar tour" carried out in a most professional way by a young lady who was totally committed to the product and supplied us with a wealth of information during the exceptional tasting. Do not miss this. They also had a small range of wines which we found to be to our taste and cheaper than much of the local competition.

We booked the olive and wine tasting, not sure what to expect. We were blown away by the taste sensation. A professional and informative presentation that covered so much. We had such a good time, we shopped up a storm afterwards!

Visited on Thursday morning warmly welcomed and asked to join another couple who had already started so we begun with the olive oils . Presenter was excellent sorry but I forget her name she did an informative presentation and answered everyone’s questions with a smile. Olives were fabulous along with the different extras like Lebanese cheese and olive and the chocolate and olive etc. the wines were also good
These people could teach most of the other vineyards and olive farms how to do it
If in the area don’t miss it.
Well worth a visit

On a whim we stopped at the farm. There was an awesome selection of olive products, a very knowledgeable guide, Emma, who gave a very informative tasting experience over some 27 products and a gorgeous farm setting. The tasting room was incredible and we left very happy. The wine is good too.

We had a fabulous time tasting olives, olive oils, rubs and olive pastes as well as the whole bath and body product experience. Cherise was an incredible hostess sharing her expertise and knowledge about her products in a very informative and professional manner. We had no idea there was so much to learn about olive oil and its uses! A great visit, highly recommended.
