Our Family Story

Robert Oatley has more than 80 years of life experience, and 60 years of epicurean business experience. Over the past 40 years, he’s focused on crafting market leading wines.

The Robert Oatley olive grove was established in 1998 when Ian and Tanya Oatley and their children James, Jessica and Daniel planted 10,000 olive trees on their  farm near Gulgong, New South Wales.

Our children planted the first olive trees on the property during their school holidays, it’s great for them to see how you can take a virgin paddock and create something wonderful from it."
- Ian Oatley

The venture was inspired by the desire to create fine quality olive oil with the emphasis on developing the natural benefits of this ancient panacea.
