Explore your epicurean options—salads, entrées, and even desserts can benefit from the delectable flavor of this versatile olive oil.
Núñez de Prado Extra Virgin Olive Oil is certified organic and made from a blend of up to 7 different olive varieties grown in the family's groves. Handpicked olives are processed in the family's mill using an ancient method devised by the Marquis de Acapulco. The process involves crushing the olives under granite stones, after which the paste is placed on a fine-mesh screen. Only the oil that flows through the screen by gravity - no pressure is applied - is bottled in its unfiltered form. The oil has an extraordinarily low oleic acidity of 0.1%. It is commonly called the Flor del Aceite (flower of the oil) because, while only 8% of the olive's oil content is released during its gentle processing, virtually all the savory senses of smell and taste are concentrated within.
Each bottle from this special limited-quantity harvest is numbered individually. This ensures that specific groves—and even individual trees—can be determined, allowing complete traceability and ensuring the highest quality. Want to visit the trees that produced your olive oil? Each bottle contains a personal invitation from the Núñez de Prado family to visit the family mill in Baena, Spain.
