Black bottle/Alfafarenca

The name Alfafarenca or Alfafara originates from the Alicante town of Alfafara and it is one of the 24 principal olive varieties grown in Spain. Thanks to its delicate aromas and flavours not only can this variety be consumed as olive oil but also as table olives.
Our Alfafarenca olive grove is a certified centenarian grove. Certification is granted by using the internationally recognised procedure of measuring the perimeter of the olive tree trucks at a height of 1 metre above the ground.
