Oro del Desierto is a family owned and operated single estate producer in Tabernas Spain where Europe’s only desert resides. When you combine the climate conditions (more than 3000 hours of sunshine per year) with the extra care they take during the production process (cold extraction within 8 hours after harvesting by hand) the result is an organic extra virgin olive oil like no other!
