Prince Albert | Kredouw Olive Estate is situated in the Eastern entrance of the Prince Albert Valley in the heart of the Swartberg mountain range. We are blessed to have a unique combination of soil, water and climate to produce top olive oils. The soil is rocky loam soil which has built up in the valley over millions of years, since the mountains were formed. Our water comes from a waterfall in the mountain. The tested quality of this stream is of a more pure nature than bottled water. We have a Mediterranean microclimate of hot summers and cool winters with cooling southerly winds during the afternoons of the hot summer months. This increases the fruitiness of the olive oil and explains why most of the trees lean to the north.
