The Mediterranean climate of the
area surrounding Sarroca de Lérida, a northeastern
village in the Spanish province of Lleida, 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 quality.
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.
