This Early Harvest oil is produced from the 100% Arbequina olives used for Vea's Lerida olive oil. It is harvested by hand during the first 4 days of the harvest, before they have fully ripened while they are still young and green. The olives, once picked, are taken to the mill within hours where they are examined for any cuts or bruises that may have oxidized the fruit. Only pristine fruit is accepted for oil production. The oil is then extracted using state of the art methods that allow for an extremely cold press and reduced exposure to light and oxygen, which can damage the oil. The result is beautiful green and fruity oil, fragrant from the young olives with the same distinctively nutty flavor and buttery texture of the rest of Vea's oils. This is the pure essence of mature Arbequina trees allowed to grow in their native soil.

For Generations, the name Vea has stood for the highest standards of quality in the cultivation of olives and the pressing of extra-virgin olive oils. Senor Avelino Vea, who now runs the family business, has maintained and elevated those standards by introducing the latest production techniques. He has also deliberately preserved the traditional methods of cultivation and blending, as well as the integrity of the oils that bear the Vea family name. As a result, Vea has earned recognition among the world's most discerning chefs and restaurateurs who value the oil for its fine and subtle flavor & consistency.
