Almazaras de la SubbÌ©tica is located within the rugged and mountainous terrain of the Sierras SubbÌ©ticas national park in the south of the Province of CÌ_rdoba, 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 SubbÌ©tica 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 JesÌ¼s Nazareno, founded in the early 1960s in Priego de CÌ_rdoba. With the modernization of farming techniques, the use of modern machinery and a focus on top quality, Almazaras de la SubbÌ©tica has managed to adapt tradition and technology to the high quality standards demanded by the most discerning of consumers.
