To talk about Cortijo el Puerto Organic & Biodynamic Extra Virgin Olive Oils is to talk about Ecology and Innovation, Biodiversity and Quality, Green Economy and Environmental Sustainability. Widely awarded and worldwide positioned ( first three places of the EVOO World Ranking 2017, 2018 and 2019) shows how ecology can be fully competitive.
Our olive grove Cortijo el Puerto is located in the heart of the Guadalquivir, in Lora del Río (Seville-Spain). 100% organic and biodynamic production. With quality as a premise, only the olives in perfect condition are harvested, during October and transported in boxes, maintaining low temperatures throughout the process and quickly milled with cold extraction technique.
The extra virgin olive oil or EVOO differs from the refined one by the lack of chemical processes; thus, it has no flaws and its organoleptic properties (colour, aroma and flavour) are unaltered.

The biodynamic agriculture of which these olives are fruit entails a philosophy of life. It is a higher step in organic farming. The prevention measures, land care and soil protection, the way to control pests, harvest time… are determining factors for the organoleptic features, composition and quality of food.
This is a model able to answer the great challenges that the agricultural sector is already facing: scarcer rainfall, more degraded soils due to abuse and neglect and a demand for higher quality food as well as long-term sustainability.
Our management practices are intended to restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony. We consider that our role in nature must be proactive, thus Cortijo el Puerto is committed to biodiversity. The prime objective is always to encourage healthy conditions for life: soil fertility, plant and animal health, and product quality” By understanding soils and ecosystem interactions, we produce food in a healthier way and with higher quality. Over time, it implies strong cost savings, noticeable expansion of recycling and much more self-sufficiency (green & circular economy) and, above all, plant health, from the soil to the ripening of the olive and that is a guarantee of quality.
Our wide range of 8 different olive varieties is a noticeble innovation in the world EVOO market, significantly expanding its olive-diversity. Granja (Farm) Collection packaging is a tribute to the farm animals. It reflects the rich biodiversity of flora and fauna that characterises and defines Cortijo el Puerto and the intimate union of a rich ecosystem that produces this exquisite oil.
We use recyclable materials, following our philosophy of preserving the ecosystem and providing maximum stability and preservation of aroma, flavour, freshness, etc. of our EVOO. In addition, our glass bottles (black and transparent) are labelled in Braille and equipped with greaseproof paper.
A tip: To preserve EVOO we recommend an airtight container, in a cool place and away from the light. This will ensure its properties for up to two years.
