The Primo Estate story is an Australian journey with an Italian twist.
Joe made the first tiny batch of JOSEPH olive oil as a publicity stunt to draw attention to the Italian heritage of his wines, he bottled it in wine bottles because there was nothing else available. 27 years later this seasonal product (JOSEPH First Run is still the first new oil on the market when it is released in early June) is a multiple gold medal winning Australian gourmet icon, Neil Perry raves about it and Qantas serve it in first class. Joe still works with some of same olive groves he visited back in 1989 and in the last 27 years he has seen the industry flourish with modern groves and classic and new varieties from mature trees now at his disposal. The olives he has to work with get better and better each year.
I remain swept up by the romance of it all. More than anything else Primo Estate celebrates la dolce vita, Australian style!

Almost 30 years ago, nestled in a quaint English village in the heart of the Cotswolds, a desire to create something a little bit different, a little bit out of the ordinary, came to fruition in Bottlegreen. In the true spirit of pioneers, bottlegreen was more of a happy accident than a carefully thought out plan, when wine making entrepreneurs used a unique cold-filtration process to create Elderflower Cordial and Sparkling Pressé.
