Process - Senorios de Relleu | High Quality Spanish Extra Virgin Olive Oils
 

Process

In Señorios de Relleu® we harvest our own olives that we have nurtured with such care throughout the year in order to grind them within a few hours after they have been harvested. This is all done in the same estate. This way we obtain a high quality product, a real limited production olive juice.

Know the whole process:

  • Collection
  • Grinder
  • Cellar
  • Bottling
  • Quality decalogue

Early collection in the middle of October allows us to enjoy this golden liquid with the maximum intensity. The low yield obtained are compensated with a higher quality, aroma and fruit.

Collection is planned beforehand, as we are advised by specialists.

Fruit collection is carried out by gently vibrating the branches, as due to the rugged ground, mechanization is nearly impossible: a laborious task that is made up for by minimizing damage to the fruit and the tree.

We do not pick up the olives from the ground so as to ensure that our oil presents the best organoleptic attributes.

The time between harvesting and grinding the fruit is reduced as much as possible as the oil press is located in the estate. The oil is extracted only a few hours after the olive is harvested, this way we are able to maintain the fruit optimally.

In the Grinder, with cold centrifugation system, the olive juice is extracted only using physical means (grinding, beating and separation), in a mechanical manner without using chemical agents.

Subsequently, with the surplus olive paste, we make compost to fertilize our olive trees naturally and return the nutrients to the land.

Once we have obtained the oil, we store it in stainless steel containers to prevent it from deteriorating, and in this way maintaining its flavour, aroma and composition.

As we are producers and distributors, we obtain this maximum quality because we comprehensively monitor the oil from its cultivation on the estate to its sale in the bottle; in this way we avoid any third party handling.
