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).

Loved the olive tasting
Dec 2019 • Couples
We paid only R40 per person for an olive and wine tasting. We learned so much about olives and olive production. Totally worth it! Staff was very friendly and helpful

Firstly, what a beautiful farm. When we entered the shop ,we were greeted warmly and told about the tasting. Some of our party opted for it, and it is not to be missed, even if you are not an olive fan. Everything from pastes, rubs, chocolate, labneh and of course olives, to the creams and bath salts (oh, and wine!)The products are really well priced, beautifully packaged, and our presenter did a great job

Authentic olive oil and wine tasting
Dec 2019 • Friends
Hosted by the professional and friendly Lana in December 2019 for this unique and informative experience involving all things olive - including tasting olive oil. Aside from the wonderful olive oils, from pure virgin to lemon infused, we were treated to an assortment of olive condiments and the farm’s exclusive small batch wine. Ideal for groups, should take no more than an hour, and the hosts had wonderful advice regarding further things to do in the charming town of Darling

I didn’t expect this!
Oct 2019 • Friends
We popped in here expecting to taste a bit of oil & maybe an olive or two! ... how wrong were we!?? The things you can do with olives!?!

We enjoyed oil, rubs, paste, jam, chutney, cheese all complemented with wines ... then finished off with lip balm, body butter & bath salts!

Our hostess was friendly & informative.

Drop in & give it a try!

There's more to olives than you might think!
Sep 2019
We stopped in at Darling Olives today to see what everyone was raving about. The Olive Tasting involves a 45 minute journey served on a rolling basis (so there's no waiting) sampling 21 products from this stand-out farm. From olives, olive oil, to tapenades, to jams, chocolate and beauty products. All originating from olives grown on the farm and complemented by the their wines with the recent vintages of Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz proving to be pretty good. It was an educational experience and very well delivered. It's definitely worth popping in if you love olives or need to be converted.

Get here, even if you don’t like olives!
Aug 2019 • Family
A must do outing when in Darling. Welcoming staff are passionate to indulge visitors with 101 uses for the traditionally underrated little fruit. Our hostess, Lana, gave us an insightful and interesting tasting of all the farm produce, paired with red and white wine.

On offer, is a phenomenal range of products. We tasted olive jams, rubs and spreads, to name a few. There are even beauty products with olive ingredients!

Once done with the tasting, your biggest challenge will be to decide what to buy and what to leave...

This farm also had a fun and entertaining jungle gym with some farm styled structures.
