Venta del Barón
COLLECTION AND PROCESSING
The fruits from which our oil is obtained are collected in the green phase, with the slight change in color of the olive. It is harvested using a technique reserved especially for "oleum ex-albis ulivis". After this phase, the selection process takes place, in which the loose leaves are removed, washed and the quality of the olives is checked. Venta del Barón is ground cold, reducing the extraction time. Only the most intense batches are selected for their aroma, according to the strict regulations of the Priego de Córdoba Denomination of Origin. This milling occurs in less than 15 hours after collection to preserve all its aromas. Almazara de Muela has a unique and exclusive system that allows the extraction of oil without adding heat or water to the process. In this way it is possible to maintain each and every one of the attributes of the oil. This is complemented by a demanding concern to minimize the oxidative damage suffered by the product. With regard to packaging, the "Venta del Barón" is committed to a model of subtraction and packaging in the same facilities.
