L'Estornell Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

VEA of Catalonia is Northern Spain's leading family-owned and operated producer of extra virgin olive oils under the L'Estornell name - a Catalan word for an olive-loving bird, depicted on the label. L'Estornell's international reputation for creating oils with perfect balance of texture, flavor and style can be attributed to the region's unique terroir, a wild terraced landscape with dry, hot summers and cold winters. Time-honored cultivation methods, artful blending, and the family's personal attention have created one of the most sought after oils in the world. Every bottle is vintage-dated.

Our recipe: Oil and Vinegar "Dressing"

  • L'Estornell is the result of pressing Arbequina olives and two other northern Spain varieties, both of which impart a peppery quality and spicy aftertaste. L'Estornell Organic made from 100% Arbequina olives has a very fine, almost sweet, slightly nutty-almond taste (attributable to the planting of almond trees among the olive groves: see health benefits).

  • L'Estornelll olive oil is suitable for dressing salads, finishing soups or cooked vegetables and fish.

  • Olives for L'Estornell Organic use farming methods without pesticides or herbicides to ensure a natural soil. The local practice of planting almonds trees among the olive groves is a traditional deterrent to insect infestation in northern Spain.
