|EXTRA-VIRGIN OLIVE OIL FROM TREES ALIVE WHEN CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS SAILED FOR AMERICA|
trees can live for over a thousand years, and all over Spain
there are trees of many varieties which were living and bearing
fruit when Christopher Columbus set sail for America in 1492.
Avelino Veá is therefore
offering a strictly limited edition product which will be
presented in hand-crafted glass 'taberna' decanters, of the
kind used throughout Spain during Columbus' lifetime. Each
decanter comes complete with a glass stopper, and is decorated
with specially designed labels.
The extra-virgin olive oil itself is of outstanding quality, color and flavor - perfect in extra-special salad dressings and in recipe dishes which depend on the authentic flavor and qualities of first-class, extra-virgin olive oil for their essential character.
Columbus's three ships - the Flagship Santa Maria; the 'Pinta' and the 'Niña' made up the first recorded European expedition to cross the Atlantic Ocean in warm or temperate latitudes. The expedition was financed by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain, and by Luis de Santángel, keeper of the Royal Exchequer, who was largely instrumental in securing the support of the Spanish monarchs.
The King and Queen paid Columbus' crews and provided his ships, no doubt stocking them with abundant supplies of olive oil - much of it, possibly, from the very same trees that have yielded this special bottling by L'Estornell.
