Willow Creek Estate lies in the Nuy Valley, in the Western Cape. Overlooked by the Rabie Mountain which forms part of the Langeberg Mountain range, the farm has been in the Rabie family since the late 1700s when it was first cultivated by Johannes Stephanus Rabie. His descendant, Andries Rabie, planted the first olive trees in 1999 and in 2002 the first oil was pressed.
Today Willow Creek Estate comprises 250 hectares, planted with 210 000 olive trees. They have established themselves as one of the largest estate olive oil producers in the Southern Hemisphere. Meticulous attention to the trees ensures even ripening and consistant quality. The estate is planted to the following classic cultivars: Coratina, Frantoio, Leccino, Barnea, Koroneiki, Favoloza, Mission, Kalamata, Noccelara del Belice and Manzanilla.
An impressive track record of awards and accolades, both local and international, attests to the quality, consistency and appeal of the renowned Willow Creek range of extra virgin olive oils. For Willow Creek Olive Estate, however, the best prize of all is sharing their passion with olive oil lovers around the world.
