Why nine hundred? A bit of our origin
The cultivation of the olive grove and the extraction of olive oil from its fruit in the Iberian Peninsula date back to the 6th century BC. In its origins its use was not food, rather medicinal and cosmetic due to its qualities. Furthermore, this land of ours did not see its birth as a crop developed by the hand of man. However, as in most of the products of the earth, there is territory that meets exceptional circumstances to produce a superior quality of the oil obtained from the fruit of the olive grove.
For this, the first thing is to treat the product as what it really is, a fruit, and therefore the care and dedication in its cultivation, harvesting, transport and subsequent processing until obtaining its pure oily juice, extra virgin olive oil, must be scrupulous and extremely demanding. This fact justifies its high value as a healthy food and absolutely necessary to obtain a balanced diet and keep our body young.
The variety of types of olive groves, picual, hojiblanco, arbequina, etc. will condition the flavor and aromas of olive oil. Any of them has qualities widely valued by the diner and it will depend on their taste and appreciation for olive oil to choose the consumption of one or the other.

But no matter how demanding it may be in its production and cultivation process, there are exceptional circumstances in the land where the olive tree is grown that add another point of quality to the olive and, therefore, of flavor and intensity.

This is the origin of our name and it is what makes our oil unique and different.
