PRODUCTION AND HISTORY
Its production is carried out with the maximum quality: the care of the olive tree; the early harvest of the olives (between October and November depending on the variety); its transfer to the mill within six hours of harvest; double cold pressing at different speeds in a cutting edge mill. Work that is carried out with passion and rigour by the very best professionals and is subject to the strictest internal and external quality controls.
Our family's history in olive growing goes back over more than five generations, towards the middle of the 5th Century.Knowledge about growing olive trees and the secrets behind the production of the finest Extra Virgin Olive Oil has been passed down from father to son. Our 1,230-hectare olive grove is located in Viso del Marqués, towards the south of Castilla-La Mancha. Here, we take care in looking after our more than 12,000 olive trees located at an average of 830 metres above sea level. This privileged location, together with the continental Mediterranean climate, makes this the perfect place for growing olives.
