An Artisan Tradition

Castillo de Piñar is the result of centuries of family tradition of olive oil farming and production. Some of our olive trees are hundreds of years old, and they draw the topography of our land to produce a superior quality of olive oil.

Careful Cultivation

With over 200,000 olive trees producing over 4,000,000 liters each season, we still maintain high standards of cultivation for each tree.

Each Picual and Arbequina Olive is handpicked from the tree then carefully separated and sorted according to soil and altitude grade. Only the best olives are selected to ensure olive oil production is of the highest quality.

Cold Pressed

The olives are brought to our cold press facility within 6 hours of harvest to begin the oil extraction process. Selected olives are poured into receiving hoppers to be washed and rinsed naturallyCastillo De Pinar Olive Oil Almacenamiento using fresh cold water. The olives are pressed and then pumped to a decanter where the oil is extracted via centrifuge. The temperature is carefully regulated so that it is never higher than 80˚ F.

Finally, after the oil is extracted it is stored in giant stainless steel hoppers in the cellar.

Our farms harvest olives from some of the world's oldest producing trees in the Andalusia region of Spain. This area offers the most suitable climate and soil conditions for growing Picual and Arbequina olives which yield the best and most flavorful olive oils.

Organic Extra Virgin (OEVOO) and Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) enhance prepared foods both in appearance and by adding a sweet and peppery finish to the taste. The best OEVOO and EVOO come from Picual Olives.

These olives take their name from the pointed shape (peak) of the olive. Originally from Jaén and surrounding areas such as Granada and Cordoba, Picual Olives are the most highly sought after variety and produce oil known for its floral aroma, distinctive flavor, high Oleic Acid Content, and high Stability Rate.

 

Picual Olives are medium to large in size (3.2 grams on average) and have a meat to bone ratio of 5:6. Picual oil yield is high, up to 28% vs. the average of 22% per olive. These exquisite olives are harvested when they reach their flavor peak in early November to mid-December.

Arbequina Olives

Richly Flavored Virgin Olive Oil

Castillo De Pinar Olive Oil Arbequina

We blend our Arbequina and Picual Olives to create a uniquely savory, yet fruity Olive Oil which enhances all baking and frying recipes. The Arbequina olive was originally grown in the Catalonia and Aragon regions of northeastern Spain. Later, olive growers in Jaén, Cordoba and Granada added this sweet fruit to their farms in southern Spain.

Arbequina Olives are smaller, sweeter green olives which ripen early, vesus other varieties. Our Arbequina-Picual Olive Oil is delicate-tasting with a fruity aroma perfect for baking, particularly when substituting olive oil for butter, margarine and/or other oils which are high in saturated fats, and polyunsaturated fats. Arbequina accounts for more than three-quarters of California's Olive Farm acreage. Our oil comes from the ancestors of California's olive trees.
