Durbanville | Hillcrest Estate’s olive orchards were established in 1993 and have yielded award-winning olives and olive oils in its short lifetime. The view from our orchards, situated between 300 and 400 meters above sea level, sweeps across Table Bay to Robben Island and Table Mountain.
Our orchards mainly consist of Mission, Frantoio and Kalamata cultivars. In 2001 we processed our first table olives and outsourced the making of our first olive oil. Realising the quality of the olive oil, we endeavored to make our own and purchased the necessary equipment. All production is done on the farm by hand; from harvesting to bottling. We have subsequently upgraded our machine to an Oliomo 150 and Hillcrest continues to make award-winning olive oils.
