Rincon de la Subbética: One of the top 50 Best Olive Oil in the World, this 100% Hojiblanco extra virgin olive oil is intensely fruity with aromas of herbaceous plants, thyme and mint with prominent notes of tomato and garden vegetables. The taste is initially sweet with a green almond flavor and a moderately spicy finish. This fragrant oil is best when paired with heavier meals that are rich in flavor. Drizzle over toast, mixed salads, tomatoes, meat and oily fish.
Parqueoliva Serie Oro: An extraordinarily well-balanced oil with aromas of intense green fruit such as apples and green banana along with vegetal notes of tomato and artichoke, fresh-cut grass and green almonds. On the palette, the oil is sweet with notes of green almond and has a delightful pungent finish. This oil is ideal for carpaccios, pastas, sauces, meats and white fish.
Almazaras de la Subbetica is located within the rugged and mountainous terrain of the Sierras Subbeticas national park in the south of the Province of Cordoba, an area with a unique microclimate characterized by high rainfall and large temperature variations. It is in this setting that their legendary mature olive trees stand majestically in a landscape that has remained unchanged through the passage of time. Almazaras de la Subbetica is a first-level agricultural cooperative formed in July of 2007 following the merger of two prestigious and experienced cooperatives: S.C.A Virgen del Castillo, founded in 1954 in Carcabuey and S.C.A Olivarera Nuestro Padre Jesus Nazareno, founded in the early 1960s in Priego de Cordoba. With the modernization of farming techniques, the use of modern machinery and a focus on top quality, Almazaras de la Subbetica has managed to adapt tradition and technology to the high quality standards demanded by the most discerning of consumers.
