JOSEPH Cold Pressed is a rich, fruity oil blended in August from olives picked at the height of the growing season. Primo Estate\'s owner, winemaker and master oil blender, Joe Grilli, blends grove specific batches of oil from South Australia\'s Willunga Hills to create this Australian gourmet icon.

In 1989 a young winemaker called Joe Grilli put a ladder in the back of his ute and went and knocked on the doors of friends and strangers alike, \'Are you going to do anything with those olives?\' he asked. The answer was usually \'no\' as up until then olive oil was something imported by specialist delicatessens. Hard to believe but 21 years ago Australian extra virgin olive oil was completely unknown.

Joe made the first tiny batch of JOSEPH Olive Oil to draw attention to his Italian heritage and his new JOSEPH wine label. He bottled it in wine bottles declaring a vintage on the front label. Twenty three years later this seasonal product is a multiple gold medal winning Australian gourmet icon.
