The Loopline Story

Situated in Opaki in New Zealand’s Wairarapa region

Loopline Olives specialises in the highest quality, single variety 

Certified Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO).


All our 2019 oils are award winning, including Gold Medals for Picual and Picholene at the Official Index of the World’s Best Olive Oils 2020. 


Loopline’s 2018 Picholene won a Gold Medal 

at the New York International Olive Oil Competition

as noted in the 2019 Official Index of the World’s Best Olive Oils


Five olive varieties grow at Loopline, flourishing in the hot dry summer days, cool nights and crisp winters.  


Oil is produced from four of the varieties

Picual, Picholene, Leccino and Frantoio 

each picked and pressed separately to celebrate this special

 fruit juice’s individual qualities.

Like fine wine, each oil vintage reflects not only

it’s Spanish, French or Italian varietal 

but also the growing season’s weather patterns. 


Unlike wine however, olive oil is best consumed as fresh as possible for full health benefits and fruitiness.


Loopline’s owner Stephen Davies Howard feels a huge responsibility for these special trees that live for hundreds of years. 


He is keen to keep achieving the award winning quality of all

Loopline Extra Virgin Olive Oils

and committed to best-practice in all stages of production.


Over the years many awards have been won across all varieties 

of Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced from the Loopline Grove.


International judges to the Olives New Zealand Awards awarded Loopline olive oils Best in Class 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018 and Best in Show in 2014, 2017 and 2018.


The previous owners were Mark and Kate Bunny. The Bunny family were early Wairarapa settlers. The grove is on part of the original Bunny farm.


Since taking over the grove Stephen has become a

qualified olive oil sommelier.
