Award-winning oil rated "Best Olive Oil in the World" at the highly prestigious 2013 Mario Solinas awards from the International Olive Oil Council. Estepa Virgen is pressed from fresh, unripe olives picked at the beginning of the harvest when the olives just begin to ripen on the trees and the color begins to turn red, known as “envero”. This produces an oil that is intensely fruity with moderate intensities of bitterness and spice.
