This is Luis and Maria's oil from their 4 hectare grove on the windy plains of Cadiz, Andalusia. Harvested mid-October 2021 and bottled on 04/07/2022 for maximum freshness.

 

Luis and his wife have been making Picual olive oil since they planted their trees in 1995, with a commitment to take maximum care of the environment. Their farm is organic, certified by the CAAE. They use the no-tillage farming technique, and their grove is dry - meaning no water irrigation systems are used.


This is small scale farming. This year was a good harvest, with Luis able to produce just shy of 3,000 litres of olive oil from his grove.
