This special and unique ‘azeite’ is an extra virgin olive oil with very low acidity and derived from very old olive trees, most part of them with more than 100 years, of the Galega variety.

After the mechanical cold extraction, the oil is decanted into stainless-steel vats and allowed to rest for 4 to 6 months before bottling.
