Oro del Desierto Coupage olive oil
Extra virgin olive oil Oro del Desierto Coupage, particular selection made by our mill Master, from olives harvested at the end of October and the beginning of November.
These come from the varieties Arbequina, Hojiblanca and Picual.
The key to success in achieving maximum quality is to take maximum care of all the steps of the process, there are no shortcuts.
Our olive grove has the luck and privilege of being virtually in the desert. It is the driest area of Spain, which helps us a lot to control pests.
For example, we almost do not have Olive Fly. With so much dryness it does not favor its reproduction and prefers to go to more humid olive groves.
This brings another benefit and that is that we do not need to use chemical compounds to fight against these pests. Therefore we reduce costs and do not alter the original taste of the oil.
How to store my Oro del Desierto Coupage olive oil

Also, it should be used up within six months of opening, but better within 30 to 60 days upon opening.
It is not necessary to refrigerate an unopened bottle of olive oil as long as stored properly.

Remember, Extra virgin olive oil is fresh-squeezed juice, consequently, extra virgin olive oil is perishable. And, unlike wine, extra virgin olive oil doesn’t improve with age.
