Arbequina Olive Oil making

The small and brown Arbequina olives are mostly grown in Catalonia, Aragon and Andalusia region of Spain. The main grove is located in the county of Baix Emporda in the province of Girona, Catalonia, just fifty kilometres from the border with France, and twelve kilometres from the Mediterranean Sea.

During the ripening Arbequina olives change colour from a pale green to pink and finally to purple. However, the colour of the olive oil varies from emerald green to golden yellow, which mostly depends on the moment of harvesting. Nevertheless, Arbequina olives have the highest concentration of oil.

Moreover, the micro-climate of the Alt and Baix Emporda counties is very much suitable for cultivating olive trees. The trees and the fruit endure the “Tramontana”, a strong and cold wind that comes from the Pyrenees, but afterwards the gentle breeze of the Mediterranean comes to offer them solace.

Can Solivera Unfiltered Arbequina olive oil is obtained solely from the first cold extraction or pressing of the pulp of healthy Arbequina olives.

The producer of Arbequina olive oil follows the traditional methods of oil extraction to preserve the original flavour, colour and aroma of the olives.

By slowly pouring the fresh oil from the top of the container, they assure that the unwanted sediment remains undisturbed. Finally, they filter the end product of Arbequina olive oil that is endowed with an extraordinary flavour.
