The Granja family keeps growing and today we introduce the MINI GRANJA collection 4 x 250 ml.
100% Organic EVOO, pure olive juice from Arbequina, Arbosana, Picudo and Picual varieties. First day of harvest.
Cortijo el Puerto Mini Granja collection consists of a set of 4 bottles in gray and opaque glass of 250 ml with pink stopper and boxed in an attractive gift box easy to transport and ideal for special occasions.
This set of four different EVOO varieties of superior category allows us to pair each plate with its ideal variety in order to appreciate nuances, aromas, flavours and organoleptic sensations of these different monovarietals.
In addition these bottles are labeled in Braille and use greaseproof paper.
In order to preserve the EVOO we recommend storing them in a cool dark place and away from the light and heat. This will ensure its properties for up to two years.
Our Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oils are harvested at night avoiding artificial cooling methods, so the whole process is natural and sustainable.
Cortijo el Puerto continues to focus on building healthy soil and organic food of high nutritional value: oil, almonds, etc. and achieve low environmental impact. We look to the cosmos before planting and harvesting crops. All this, we consider is noticeable in our olives’ taste.
For those who still don’t know us, in our farm each variety lends its name to one of the animals or elements of our ecosystem and in return, they lend their image. So it is reflected in our packaging. This is part of our commitment to Biodiversity.
This time, the Picual partridge, the Picudo red-breasted robin, the Arbequina hare and the Arbosana duck are the protagonists in our Mini Granja collection. Each bottle of EVOO Mini Granja corresponds to a monovarietal and here you have the tasting notes and pairings to whet your appetite.
