The Mediterranean climate of
the area surrounding Sarroca de Lérida, a northeastern
village in the Spanish province of Lleida, is ideal for growing
Arbequina olive trees. Here, as in a very few other olive
growing regions in the world, the cultivation process has
remained organic and the harvest is reaped by hand so as not
to bruise the fruit and thereby adversely affect the oil's
Lérida extra virgin olive oil comes from the result
of the first extraction process of the select Arbequina olives.
This process is carried out in a cold environment without
pressure. Lérida extra virgin olive oil is renowned
for its delicate, fragrant flavour.
