Our Olive Oils
The extra virgin olive oil is the protagonist of our culture, especially in our land, where it is one of the main referents of the famous Mediterranean diet, being a valuable ally against aging, taking care of your health due to its antioxidant and heart protecting properties.
It is important to distinguish between “variety” and “quality” in Olive Oils: two different species of olive will produce different varieties of oil that may however be of identical quality. Each variety of oil has the organoleptic characteristics of the fruit used in the extraction of its oil.
Cortijo Aparicio with its full range of olive tree varieties focuses on the production of three monovarietal oils which are: Picudo, Arbequina and Arbosana, which come from a single variety of olives as this highlights the sensorial characteristics of the variety and a mixture of two or more monovarietal oils such as Hojiblanca and Picual, in concrete proportions to complement and model the sensorial characteristics of the resulting oil, thus enriching the sensitive experience of the consumer.
The result of all this know-how, our love for olive trees and oil, and the respect for an increasingly demanding consumer, is our Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil Cortijo Aparicio.
