I love visiting Vasse Virgin, a delightful family run business in the heart of Margaret River, Western Australia. I adore testing and tasting their delicious gourmet products. All their products are made from the finest natural ingredients and free from artificial additives, preservatives or flavourings. Vasse Virgin relies upon the natural power of extra virgin olive oil to do all the work.Established when Louis and Edwina Scherini’s children were diagnosed with eczema and inspired to create a safe, chemical free alternative they soon realised the only way they could guarantee that the products were natural and healthy was to make their own.
Vasse Virgin, is situated in a stunning location of rolling hills, vineyards and Yara woodlands. The Scherini’s began experimenting in their kitchen first discovering the healing powers of extra virgin olive oil, and a new soap product was born made with extra virgin olive oil as the main base,100% pure essential oils and plant extracts.
With the product proving so popular, ‘Vasse Virgin’ became the new brand and the use of olives was further expanded to include a gourmet food range. Under the watchful eye of a specialist chef, Vasse Virgin's range of delicious olive oil gourmet food products made their début including estate grown and Western Australian olives extra virgin olive oils, balsamic vinegars and fruit vinaigrettes and a range of condiments designed to showcase both the olive and olive oil.
Olive oil has long been relied upon for its uses in both cooking and food. Amongst the many benefits, olive oil offers protection against heart disease by controlling cholesterol levels and it doesn’t stop there. The Vasee Virgin chef continues the company’s ethos in producing high quality, natural products without the use of any artificial additives, preservatives or flavourings.
