Please select an option

From the Quebrada de los Olivos estate in Rocha, Uruguay comes this single varietal oil made solely of Picual olives. The name comes from the Spanish word "pico." It is one of the more stable oils due to a very high polyphenol count. This oil is fruity, with a sweetish taste, low pungency and gentle bitterness on the finish. The aroma carries notes of ripe tomatoes, figs, with a hint of fresh banana skin. Handpicked from April to May, this oil has a medium intensity, making it perfect with the fresh taste of spring vegetables.

The founders of Quebrada de los Olivos had a vision, and in 2004 they created a unique, premium-quality extra virgin olive oil using a vertical integration and control process. Their exquisite finished product and the level of care given at every aspect of the olive's grown and journey reflects their commitment to quality and service. From the selection of the trees, to the caring, harvesting, and pressing of the delicious olives, Quebrada de los Olivos offers the finest extra virgin olive oil from Uruguay. This vibrant green oil is fresh and lively on the tongue, making it a perfect partner with grilled chicken with herbs, quinoa salad, or dressing fresh tomatoes.

While a small country, Uruguay is renowned for its high-quality natural edible products worldwide such as meat, vegetables and fruits. In recent years Uruguay has emerged as a new player in the premium olive oil market, with many olive tree estates being born around the southern and northeastern parts of the country. Quebrada de los Olivos estate is located on the sinuous hills of Rocha Province in Uruguay, only 10 kilometers away from the Atlantic Ocean, at 180 meters above sea level. The lands have light soils with excellent drainage capacity and lay over an extended underground aquifer of pristine pure water, which is used for irrigation. The groves are comprised by 85.000 olive trees distributed in four distinct varieties. Arbequina, Coratina, Picual, and Farga. The blending of the oils is done by Quebrada de los Olivos' expert tasters to achieve the best composition, according to the requirements of their customers and the season's harvest.
