Lovers of imported extra virgin olive oil weep no more.

The Waiheke and Frantoio Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil (2017), made by New Zealand’s award winning extra virgin olive oil producer, Rangihoua Estate, is now available in Houston.

The first shipment of the two blends of Rangihoua Estate’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil or EVOO, made it to still water-soaked Houston just weeks after Hurricane Harvey dropped massive and historic rain fall amounts on the city.

“The Kiwi Importer offers expedited delivery to customers since we already have the product on stock,” says The Kiwi Importer CEO Sarah Ayala from her office and warehouse in Richmond, Texas. “This is great for US consumers who love olive oil because it is now available here with fast shipping and a competitive price.”

The select blends -- Frantoio and Waiheke, available in 250 mls bottles -- contain high levels of antioxidants, monounsaturated fats (good fats), polyphenols, Omega 3 and Vitamin E. Just what the doctor ordered.

Rangihoua Estate, founded by Anne Stanimiroff and Colin Sayles, is located on the small Waiheke Island situated in the Hauraki Gulf of the coast of Auckland, New Zealand. The estate manages 4,200 olive trees all growing on Waiheke Island, which has been described as a little Mediterranean jewel nestled in the Hauraki Gulf, 19 km from Auckland City. With its unique micro-climate it has a long, dry, hot summer essential for ripening olives.

“The aroma that is released as one opens the new bottle smells like olives and not a vegetable oil,” says Ayala, a native of New Zealand who now calls Houston home. “This is a wonderful topping for any tossed salad.”

In 2013, Rangihoua Estate was ranked ‘Best 20 in the World’ by Flos Olei – The Italian Guide to the World’s Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Each year both International and National Gold medals have been awarded to their EVOO.

“The Frantoio Blend is more a classic tasting with a creamy almond base note. The Waiheke Blend is stronger and greener tasting with a longer peppery finish,” said Stanimiroff in an emailed statement. “To me the Waiheke Blend tastes like New Zealand green and fresh!”
