Winning awards for great tasting Extra Virgin Olive Oil has just become second nature for the owners of Silver Hill Estate, with a second Best in Show award at the Oliveti extra virgin olive oil awards 2014.
Stephanie Railey was at the field days held on a northland Oliveti members grove this year to receive the beautiful trophy for Best in Show. Her partner Wayne Radford was unable to be there, as he was busy away with customers at the Mokohinau Islands with their other passion, a fishing charter business RnR Charters Ltd.
Silver Hill Estate was founded in 1997 when Wayne and Stephanie planted around a thousand trees. They then went on to build their own traditional style press and de-leafer and use organic methods to grow the olives, this combination they think is the reason they have success with their awards entries.
Silver Hill Estate received a total of seven awards for their four entries this year and as part of the prize, their oil will be available at Sabatos in Auckland. Stephanie says that they will have an online shop at www.nzoliveoil.co.nz up and running soon, and is working on that now.
