The olive grove


 

The Olive Groove of Montoro
The Olive Groove of ‘Bujalance’
The Olive Groove of ‘El Carpio’

Our trees are grown in the countryside of Cordoba, next to the Guadalquivir river and the mountains of Cardena-Montoro Natural Park of Sierra Morena, keeping the olive family tradition already started in the nineteenth century.

In our olive grove the picual varietypredominates, although by the climatic characteristics of our farms, we have varieties such as Arbequina and black Nevadillo enabling us to offer different extra virgin olive oils according to their genetics and origin, that is, single varietal in the countryside, ecological with DOP or Montoro Adamuz from the mountains.
Our farms are located along the municipalities of Montoro, Bujalance and El Carpio.

Our trees are grown in the countryside of Cordoba, next to the Guadalquivir river and the mountains of Cardena-Montoro Natural Park of Sierra Morena, keeping the olive growing family tradition already started in the nineteenth century.

The density of our olive grove and its cultivation vary according to their age or the composition of the soil, with plantations ranging from 150-275 olive trees per hectare.
We take care of every stage of our olive grove, checking that the pruning is done correctly to promote that the light and the air is evenly distributed all over the olive tree and preparing it for the optimum moment to harvest.

Deciding the beginning of harvest is critical. This should begin at the optimum moment and selecting only the olives on the olive tree. Similarly, olive tree care is vital, so the collection is made exclusively by mechanical means to prevent damage.

The collection period varies depending on the ripeness of the fruit of the various estates, although normally the collection extends from late October to late November.
