Region: Tabernas Cultivars: multi-cultivar but predominately Picual
This multi-cultivar extra virgin olive oil is predominantly made up of the picual varietal. Coming from the Valley of Light it is sure to make any dish shine bright.
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!
Out from the badlands of Spain we’ve extracted some of the best olive oils in the world and we’re not the only ones who’ve noticed. Year after year Oro Del Desierto is recognized and awarded in international competitions.
