Olive Oil

Our Olive Oil is produced from our own olive trees, which are from the Portuguese variety, Cobrançosa, planted shortly after our arrival to Cortes de Cima in 1988. As with our vineyards, our olivegroves are accredited under a sustainable program called ‘Integrated Protection’, which limits and regulates the use of chemicals. In 2004, we bottled our first estate grown Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a Gold Medal winner at the largest international competition. For Hans, to be making oil again was a natural yearning, after working with Palm Oil for over 20 years in the Malaysian plantation industry.

Harvest and Production

Our own ‘Cobrançosa’ olives are harvested early in November 2013, and processed naturally by cold pressing within a few hours after harvest. Olive oil obtained only by mechanical extraction, without any additives.

Tasting Notes

A harmonious olive oil, with a deep greenish yellow color and a green grassy aroma typical of the Cobrançosa variety. It shows a lightly piquant and nutty flavor at the end, due to the early harvesting of the fruit.
