History & Culture
De Rustica has been producing EVOO since 2012. Our carefully selected Italian, Greek and other cultivars are handpicked and pressed on the estate. The climate is ideal with the snow-capped Swartberg Mountains providing cold winters and hot summers. The micro-climate at De Rustica is uniquely suitable for producing world class Extra Virgin Olive Oil. These ideal growing conditions and the artisanal care taken in the production and blending processes, result in exceptional quality. De Rustica is constantly improving its methods, equipment and standards in an effort to continue producing world class EVOO. The focus as always, solely on quality.
