Bonina Olive Grove is a Clare Valley Locally grown producer of Wine and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Les is a Hungarian born chap who travelled to Australia in 1957 in search of a better life. Picking up roots in Maitland NSW learning fluent english he got straight to it. Working on dairy and sheep farms he soon realised that agriculture was to be his lifestyle.
Travelling throughtout Australia, getting to know his new country, Fruit picking in QLD, Uranium mining in the Northern Territiry, his holidaying destination was always an annual visit to The Clare Valley, Knowing that one day this was going to be his own utopia.
It was then that Bonina was introduced to The Valley as a little slice of passsion. With over 800 olive trees and 2 and a half hectrares of Reisling, Sanjoivese, and Shiraz. This little farmgate has sure made an impression on the locals.
As current renovations are underway for a small Cellar Door and Farm Gate, all produce is currently available to purchaase at the Clare Valley Wine, Food & Toursim Centre, located just 3km South of Clare.
