The name Olivedale is something of a misnomer. It has little, if anything to do with the cultivated Mediterranean fruit, but refers to the indigenous olievenhout or wild olive tree that can still be found in the area surrounding Swellendam.
Olivedale is a rural community within the Buffeljagsrivier settlement which is part of the Swellendam district. Here farming is done hand-in-hand with nature, respecting the vine and what it produces. With little interference and only nature to guide us, we make wine that reflects our terroir and our respect for Mother Nature.
