Sierra de Segura
The mission of Olivar de Segura is to bring value to an authentic and unique productive system, integrated in the Sierra de Segura Natural Park (Jaén province), the largest protected natural area in Spain. This region has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO and is also an area under a special protection for birds, which is why it is now a part of the Natura 2000 network.
Extra Virgin from high mountain
Our olive grove represents a “system of high ecological value”, and is a symbol of sustainable development linked to the authentic and unique “mountain olive grove”, allowing for a balance between the production of high quality olive oil and the preservation of Spain’s natural heritage.
The natural conditions of this territory —with an average altitude of 900 meters— together with our traditional cultivation system allow us to produce a fruity and aromatic oil, that is rich in oleic acid and polyphenols, and is a source of provitamin A and vitamin E. It also has the stability provided by its origin in the Picual olive, which is known to maintain its organoleptic and sensory properties for a longer period of time than other varieties.
