Occidens is a certified organic olive oil. The olives for the Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil are handpicked very early in November in an organic farm in the Dourto region of Vila Flor, and all come from olive trees with-in very few Kms from the Mill. The olives were processed no longer than 12 hours after being picked making sure all are in perfect conditions. At the mill, the olives are cleaned very carefully using natural water from the mountain and we then squeeze them to get the fresh olive oil. We store it at the same place and it rests for around 4 months before being bottled in house. The result is an Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil with the full taste of freshly squeezed green olives, slightly spiced and with an interesting complexity.
Varieties of olive cultivars: Cobrançosa, Verdeal and Negrinho do Freixo.
