Olive Oil Festival – Sagra dell’Olio Nuovo

2 May @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us at That’s Amore Cheese with Kyneton Olive Oil for a Sunday festa to celebrate the 2021 Olio Nuovo release!
What is Olio Nuovo? Olio Nuovo is the first pressed extra virgin olive oil from the initial olives harvested at the start of a season. This is the freshest olive oil you can get!
At this event, you have the opportunity to meet the producer from Kyneton Olive Oil, taste different types of olive oil, and learn how it is made while watching live production on-site.
The first 20L of Olio Nuovo will be auctioned on the day and the proceeds will be donated to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre.
We will be serving a special menu with dishes featuring our That’s Amore Cheeses and Kyneton Olive Oil. There will be live Italian music by Siesta Cartel, cannoli cart by Cannoleria, plenty of cheese, drinks, cocktails, and a local producer marketplace.
