Gordalilla olives are unusual to find in olive oil. They are a meaty olive. Farmers usually ripen them and sell them to make table olives, because it's easier and more profitable. Instead of doing that, the López-Montero family harvests and processes them early in the season. The oil is milder than the other two varieties. It has a very unique, floral, fruity, and buttery flavor.

What we taste in each variety

Unblended, each bottle is a direct expression of the olive variety on the day it was harvested.

Balanced and Robust

Vidueña olives are actually quite common in this region of Spain, but tasting 100% Vidueña is a privilege. Most farmers sell their Vidueña olives to large processors who blend it with other varieties. Luckily, the family at La Laguna de Fuente de Piedra processes all their olives separately. 

Sweet and Buttery

Gordalilla olives are unusual to find in olive oil. They are a meaty olive. Farmers usually ripen them and sell them to make table olives, because it's easier and more profitable. Instead of doing that, the López-Montero family harvests and processes them early in the season. The oil is milder than the other two varieties, but has a very unique, floral, fruity and buttery flavor. 

Intense and Spicy

Lechin is a more primitive variety of olive tree. If there is such thing as "old world" for olive oil, this would be it. It's intense and spicy. They are among the oldest trees on the farm. 

Since olives are a fruit, fruity olive oil tastes like OLIVES!

EARLY HARVEST
GREEN OLIVES

Early in the season the yields are low, but the oil is delicious. Only farmers committed to quality olive oil harvest early.

CAREFULLY PROCESSED

The oil is delicious because the producer is focused on squeezing the olives for flavor not pennies.
