A GOOD NUMBER OF OUR OLIVE TREES ARE ALMOST AS OLD AS THE  OFFICIAL RECOGNITION OF THE FAMOUS "VIA AUGUSTA" GIVEN BY AUGUST THE EMPEROR BETWEEN THE YEARS VIII AND II BC. A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF OUR OLIVE TREES DATE BACK TO THESE DAYS, AND THE GREAT MAJORITY OF THE REST BEING AT LEAST CENTENARIAN.

"LA VIA AUGUSTA" IS 1500 KM LONG, GOING FROM THE PYRENEES(NORTHEAST OF SPAIN) ALL THE WAY DOWN TO CADIZ(SOUTH OF SPAIN). ALONG THIS PATH IS FOUND ONE OF THE VERY FEW REMAINING ROMAN TRIUMPHAL ARCHES, WHICH IS LOCATED IN OUR REGION AND WAS ARISEN IN THE II CENTURY AD.

IN THE MAKING PROCESS OF OUR EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL EVERY SINGLE DETAIL IS TAKEN CARE OF, RESULTING IN A NECESSARILY LIMITED PRODUCTION.

TO GUARANTEE THE FINEST QUALITY, IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT TIME DURING THE OLIVE PICKING SEASON, "OLEUM EX ALBIS ULIVIS", WHICH IS WHEN THE COLOUR OF THE OLIVE TURNS INTO A VERY LIGHT GREEN.

GRINDING COLD IMMEDIATELY AFTER COLLECTION, IN A PERIOD NOT LONGER THAN 12 HOURS, GUARANTEES ALL THE HEALTH BENEFITS AS WELL AS THE BEST QUALITY AND TASTE.
