Biodynamic Olive Oil – Picual – Castillo de Canena

Biodynamic olive oil is a whole other level of olive oil and farming. Organic, move over!

Castillo de Canena has been awarded the title "best oil company in the world" as well as winning the maximum points at the Flos Olei. It is owned and run by the Vano family in the Andalusia region of Spain where they have been since the 1780s. The name comes from the centuries old castle on the estate in Jaen, in the foothills of the famous Sierra Magina. The family oversees the olive orchards with great care for the land and holds several industry certifications to ensure the highest quality. This includes a special watering system from the Guadiana Menor river. The olives are picked and transported to the mill within four hours for cold pressing. They  maintain a tradition of producing the highest quality olive oil with a combination of old world tradition and modern ecological wisdom.
