The exceptional extra virgin olive oils of Masia el Altet are produced from native olives collected in the fields of the Alicante Mountains of Valencia, an area with a unique microclimate that allows the production of olives. Their rural farm is located in a narrow valley known as Polop, surrounded by mountains, pines, oaks and junipers. Bushes of sage, thyme, rosemary and mint dot the hillsides, contributing to the extraordinary beauty of the area known as the ÛÏKingdom of ValenciaÛ. During the harvest season, the olives are picked at the ideal state of maturity and immediately transferred to the olive mill where they are cold-extracted, decanted, and preserved with nitrogen in stainless steel tanks, ensuring the oilÛªs quality and integrity. The oils of Masia el Altet are prized by internationally recognized Michelin Star chefs and continue to garner some of the most prestigious awards in the world.
