The Arbosana olive grove is located at the heart of the 'Vegas Bajas del Guadiana' area. This plot of irrigated land of just five hectares was once part of the 'Plan Badajoz'. The plan's original layout has been kept and this is where our super high-density Arbosana olive grove is located. This is also a low vitality, high yield olive variety.
It is harvested a few weeks after the Arbequina olives and produces a fruity extra virgin olive oil with a long shelf life thanks to its high oleic acid content (74%). Arbosana olive oil is of a medium to high intensity bitterness and sharpness. It has an aroma of recently cut grass, almonds, tomatoes, walnuts and artichoke. It has a long-lasting and pleasant flavour.
Aceites Alguijuela is a small family agricultural business that has a long-established tradition of olive production, as our 'Verdial de Badajoz' variety of olive trees demonstrates. We are located in Torremayor, within the fertile lands of the 'Vegas Bajas del Guadiana' in the region of Mérida, which has an age-old tradition of olive cultivation since the creation of the Roman capital 'Emérita Augusta'.
From our ancestors' tradition, we have learnt to admire and love nature. We understand how important it is not to rush production processes and, above all, have developed the strength to endure times of scarcity, just like the olive trees we grow
