The production line consists of a low-oxygen impact system that maintains the maximum oil contained in the just-picked olives. The team adjusts all the parameters according to the olive varieties and their health, temperature, ripening, water concentration and the aromas and flavours desired in the end result. Once extracted, the oil is filtered immediately through cellulose panels to remove 99% of the water.
It is stored in stainless steel vats, away from the light, at temperatures ranging between 14 and 20°C to extend the shelf life. Bottling takes place in an inert atmosphere using bottles that reduce UV penetration to 97%.
