'Verdial de Badajoz' olive groves cover almost 30,000 ha in Spain, reaching from the provinces of Badajoz and Cáceres to Portugal. This is our native olive variety and as such, is our most important crop.
Our Verdial olive groves are situated within the non-irrigated area of our region. These olives are our heritage, and it is here that you will find olive trees that are hundreds of years old.
Verdial de Badajoz olive trees are of medium to high vitality with upright branches and a sparse canopy, offering constant productivity. They produce large, heavy fruits with a high fat content. Verdial de Badajoz olives are rich in linoleic acid and produce extra virgin olive oil with medium to high fruity notes. On the palate, this olive oil has almond and ripe fruit tones, combined with a pleasant, sweet flavour with just a hint of bitterness and sharpness.
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
