Origin and production
This Premium extra virgin olive oil is a coupage of the varieties of picuda and hojiblanca olives that are harvested in the first days of the season. The olives come from centenary mountain olive trees within the Sierras Subbéticas Natural Park, specifically in the municipality of Carcabuey, Priego de Córdoba and other neighboring municipalities. And they are carefully selected for the production of this very special olive oil.
The olive harvest is manual and mechanical. And once collected, not an hour passes since they arrive at the oil mill and are crushed. This process is followed by shaking and spinning to obtain the intense green juice. And finally it is filtered and stored in aluminum tanks for later packaging.
