Olive Oil Producers: The Deortegas Family
In 2008 Marcelo Ortega and Rafaela Ortega created their new olive oil mill with a very clear objective: to produce delicious organic extra virgin olive oil, with the greatest possible respect for the natural environment and inspired by a true love of the olive.
In the Region of Murcia, Spain, with the incomparable combination of the earth, sun and Mediterranean air, the Deortegas family cultivate the five varieties of olives: Arbequina, Picual, Cornicabra, Hojiblanca and Frantoio.
The harvest time starts around the middle of October when the fruit reaches the perfect moment of ripeness. The olives are pressed cold (below 27°C) and always within 12 hours of picking to ensure freshness and quality.
At the end of this process the results are spectacular. Each bottle contains the olive essence: an organic olive oil made with love and dedication from carefully selected and cold pressed olives.
An authentic gourmet delicacy this oil will surprise and delight, elevating any dish with fresh, fruity, green, delicate or more powerful aromas depending on the variety but all well balanced and elegant.
