Taralinga Estate Olive Oil
Point Leo Rd, Shoreham Vic
Salta Properties’ founder and Executive Chairman, Salvatore (Sam) Tarascio has olive oil in his veins with his Sicilian nonno, Turri a successful grower and processor in the 1930’s. Sam recently established the Mornington Peninsula’s only state-of-the-art Pieralisi olive press at his farm in the hills behind Shoreham – Taralinga Estate Olive Grove. 2015 represents our inaugural harvest, pressing and bottling of oil processed on site, as well as the launch of our consumer brand, website and Facebook pages. In addition to processing our own olives at the grove, this year Taralinga Estate pressed almost 1000 tonne of olives from other peninsula growers and we invite them to bring even more in 2016. In addition, a consumer-facing online store and distribution network will be established over coming months.
Our Taralinga Estate oil, has a Single Cultivar premium label as well as a blended version, with independent tests already revealing some of the highest levels of Polyphenol antioxidants in Australia.
