On the same day as the olive harvest, we make the oil in our mill.

The different commercial categories that we produce are our Early Harvest EVOOs (October) made with aging olives and oils made with olives at their optimum ripening point (November), all Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 100% olive juice.
We produce three varieties of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
It is our star variety, the best of our oils without a doubt, a full-bodied and powerful oil, widely endorsed by national and international critics.
The most pronounced property of this variety compared to others is its bitter and spicy balance. Also the characteristic of it, in cases where the oil comes from an early harvest, is its variety of herbaceous aromas such as olive leaf, grass, fig, and tomato.
Another important characteristic of picual oil is its high content of oleic acid (monounsaturated), which can exceed 80% of all its lipid profile. This, together with its low content of polyunsaturated acids, makes picual olive oil one of the most stable against oxidation and rancidity.
For these reasons, picual oil is the most suitable for use in high-temperature cooking, since it maintains its properties during several frying cycles. Its high content of oleic acid makes it responsible for reducing bad cholesterol (LDL) and increasing good cholesterol (HDL), which is why it is highly recommended for those with high cholesterol. It also helps reducing the oxidation of fat in the bloodstream, preventing obstruction of the pathways, which makes it one of the most beneficial varieties of olive oil for health.
Fresh, aromatic, slightly bitter and spicy, the latter standing out sensually over the former. In the visual phase, the intense green color stands out, outstanding vegetable notes in its aroma and exquisite fruity flavor with traces of grass, artichoke and green almond. As for its entry tasting, it is appreciated as a fine, creamy and velvety sweet oil that evolves into soft spicy tones in the throat.
