FINERY MAKER: Tapenade Olive Shop at The Finery Fair 2016


Tapenade Olive Shop is all about olives, and specifically, South African olives and that is why we are so excited to have these delicious products at The Finery Fair 2016. With the selection of wine farms such as Kievits Kroon and Stellenbosch Vineyards, the luxurious country estate and golden sunshine, Olive Tapenade Shop is a match made in heaven. As Thomas Jefferson says… the olive tree is surely the richest gift of heaven!

Olive Tapenade Shop showcases the best that the local industry has to offer. Their selection ranges from world-class olive oils winning international prices to flavoured oils, all beautifully packaged in bottles, tins and tubes. They travelled the country searching for the best and most interesting olives made by the many innovative South African olive farmers. Tapenade celebrates the local industry by offering the many olive spreads and jams, including chutneys, salsas, mustards and salts, all made with the humble olive. Add to that beauty products such as bath salts, soaps, oils, creams and lip balms, all olive based.

The name Tapenade is derived from the traditional French olive spread made with chopped olives, capers and anchovies. The business was started in 2005 by Nani Kornelius when she opened a retail store. Since the beginning the focus was also on the sourcing and supply of bespoke and custom made gifts for corporate clients and individuals. This year sees the launch of Tapenade’s on-line olive store.
