About the product
Oliete olive oil: a committed harvest to educate and raise awareness about the importance of plant heritage and the sustainability of an olive tree.
"A Mediterranean commitment"
Already committed to the Act for Planet association for agroforestry in Provence, Maison Brémond 1830 has been associated since 2020 with the initiative proposed by the NGO "Apradina un olivo" (adopt an olive tree), in adopting a hundred olive trees from Oliete.
Struck by rural desertification, thousands of century-old olive trees in Oliete were dying year after year for lack of maintenance. It was then that in 2014, Alberto Alfonso, a native of the country, decided to create an NGO in order to save these olive trees by sponsoring them.
This initiative has since enabled the adoption of 7,000 olive trees, the creation of 14 jobs and the construction of a new oil mill.
Oliete, a small village of 300 souls, is located in the region of Aragón (Spain), in the province of Teruel, more specifically in the Andorra-Sierra de Arcos region. It stands out for a rich Iberian culture and capricious eccentricities to which nature has given shape.
This oil is produced from the Empeltre olive, one of the oldest varieties in Spain. Cultivated mainly in the communities of the Balearic Islands and Aragon, the Empeltre olive tree is considered a hardy variety. It adapts well to poor soils and is drought tolerant. The name “Empeltre” derives from the word “Empelt” in Catalan which means to graft. Indeed, this variety of olive tree can reach a significant size, which obliges the olive grower to carry out grafts to ensure its development and increase the production of olives.
Ripe fruity, it is a soft and suave oil with aromas of red fruits, gourmet apple, strawberries and flowers.
