VARIETIES:

​Arbequina
Variety typical of Tarragona and Lerida. Fruity, aromatic and smooth.Virtually no bitter or spicy notes, making it ideal for people that start in the consumption of extra virgin olive oil. We propose to use it during breakfast, French toasts, as well as delicacies in which you want to avoid the presence of intense olive oil.
Frantoio
This variety is typical of Tuscany, a region renowned in oil production. Creamy and unique: It is one of the few Spanish frantoio that currently exist in Spain. As fruity and aromatic as the Arbequino, but with a light and elegant spicy touchin the throat. Ideal for dressings and other natural and fresh dishes.
Hojiblanca
Feature variety of central  Andalusia. We consider it the most versatile oil in the kitchen: stews, roasts and fries. Mean values in terms of sweet, fruity and bitter notes.
Manzanilla
Rare in the market. Oil with particular notes and body. To surprise the most discerning and to experiment with traditional dishes with slight changes.
PicualFrom Jaen. Classical bitterness and spicy aftertaste. The healthiest  for its high concentration of antioxidants. For people accustomed to olive oil. AWARDS
