Olio Bello

After such a huge day on the Saturday, GG and I decided that for our second full day down south, we would take ourselves on a ‘make your own foodie adventure’ and head towards Margaret River for some lunch. After studying the map, the first place I had my eye on visiting was Olio Bello.

Olio Bello Extra Virgin Olive Oil is grown and pressed at Cowaramup Creek Farm, a 320 acre property situated in the beautiful Margaret River region of Western Australia. Our olives revel in the perfect Mediterranean climate and rich organically-farmed, gravelly loam soils. Our award winning olive oils are the result of a long-term labour of love and commitment to sustainable ethical agriculture combined with organic farming principles.

Off the beaten track, as you pull into the gate you can see that Olio Bello is quite a picturesque little spot. The main complex is surrounded, as you would imagine, by row after row of olive trees. We wandered inside and were greeted with shelves full of different bottles and jars and along the front counter were plenty of opportunities to sample all their tasty offerings.

We started in the sauce section and we were both fairly taken with the Spicy Rich Tomato Pasta Sauce 500gm $16.95 – A spicy rich tomato sauce made in the traditional Italian style featuring Olio Bello EVOO (Ingredients: Tomatoes, onion, garlic, herbs, capers, EVOO, sugar, spices, lemon, salt). I could imagine cooking up some meatballs with this sauce, along with some fettuccine. We were sold and took a jar from the shelf. There was also some really nice dukkah in this section – full of flavour.

I wandered then to the other end of the counter and started on their signature olive oils. There was a really wide range available from your straight first presses to an interesting selection of infused oils. After dipping many a small piece of bread on a tooth pick into oil, I decided the Rosemary & Lime Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil (500ml) $29.95 was my favourite so added a bottle of that to our shopping basket.

There were some really beautiful products at Olio Bello and it was a nice start to our Sunday to explore the shelves and sample them at our leisure. On another visit I wouldn’t have minded perching on one of the tables and chairs they had set up outside for a bite but we had Margaret River in mind for lunch so off we set. I hope to head back another time though, they’ve definitely got a new fan in me  :)
