Almazaras de la Subbetica

Almazaras de la Subbetica produces some of the Olive Oils with the Largest Number of International Awards in the world

The Subbetica Sierra has been producing Olive Oil for Thousands of years and some of those Old Trees are still there

Almazara de la Subbetica's Olive Groves are situated in the rugged mountains of the Subbetica Sierra National Park in Cordoba, Spain. This region enjoys an ideal microclimate to grow olives: it has a relatively high rainfall with wide temperature variations. The work of the land in these olive groves is arduous, the slopes of the olive groves can be of up to 70% in this mountainous terrain- many olive trees here grow without irrigation in the "wild." Still, it is in this difficult environment that legendary olive trees from Roman times , some thousand years old, produce some of the best Olive Oils of the world.

The altitude of the Olive Groves is between 700 and 1000 mts. above sea level and has a predominance of the Picudo and Hojiblanca olive tree varieties. These old trees are so well adapted to the terrain that are, by nature, resistant to pests, frost and drought. Also, they are well adapted to limy soil and many grow in wild forests of olive trees. The groves have been taken care of by generations of growers that since 1950 started creating cooperatives to join efforts and process the olives with the most advanced means available. Today more than 4000 families- that constitute the Almazara de la Subbetica Cooperative- live for the farming of these ancient trees and convey their passion for this land by creating the most Award Winning Extra Virgin Olive Oils of the world.
