Chris Iacono of Bunna Bunno Olive Grove 

Mario Sardi

When former restaurateur Chris Iacono acquired his dream property 14 years ago he had an immediate dilemma, what to do with the 4,000 healthy olive trees he had inherited as part of the estate. 

For Chris the solution was simple, he and his family set to work to establish Bunna Bunoo as the premier Olive Grove in the region with a range of unique estate produced products. 

Located on the Paterson River in the Hunter Valley Region of NSW, the hot summers and cool crisp winters of the area are ideal conditions for cultivating olives that produce the finest olive oil, similar to the climate of Southern Italy where the Iacono family originated. By using traditional methods and adding the latest modern techniques Iacono has created products that are recognised both nationally and internationally.
