L'Estornell Extra Virgin Olive Oil is an elegant olive oil made from hand-picked, cold-pressed olives which come from the surrounding community just outside the village of Sarocca de Lerida, near Barcelona in Catalonia. The Arbequina olive is the core olive in this oil--the most widely found variety in Catalonia. L'Estornell extra virgin olive oil has an exceptional fragrance and delicacy, suitable for dressing salads and for those special occasion meals. Every bottle is vintage-dated.
For generations, the name Vea has stood for the highest standards of quality in the cultivation of olives and the pressing of extra-virgin olive oils. Senor Avelino Vea, who now runs the family business, has maintained and elevated those standards by introducing the latest production techniques. He has also deliberately preserved the traditional methods of cultivation and blending, as well as the integrity of the oils that bear the Vea family name. As a result, Vea has earned recognition among the world's most discerning chefs and restaurateurs who value the oil for its fine and subtle flavor & consistency.
