Nyons Olive Oil is made from “Tanche” olives grown in the area of Nyons, Provence. The olives contain 20 to 25% oil. The olives are allowed to ripen till black and wrinkled, then harvested in December and January, and pressed.
The olive oil is yellow in colour, and mild tasting.
The olive oil received AOC certification in 1994. On 5 October 1999, it achieved PDO designation under the name of “Huile d’olive de Nyons.”
