Try our Jaén olive oil of the picual variety in your own home

The estate of Las Fuentezuelas is situated north-west of the town of Jaén and is exclusively devoted to cultivating picual olive trees. Moreover, as quality is given priority over quantity we use only perfect fruits to make gourmet olive oil.

Not all EVOOs from Jaén are the same. Despite the fact that most of the production is of picual olive oil, the special features of the lands where the olive trees are grown create different characteristics in the oil. These differences include the intensity, the bitterness, the spiciness, the fruitiness, the various nuances of taste on sampling…

Although visiting Jaén and enjoying its olive trees and its gastronomy is a must, if you can't come to this province, see the landscape, and fall in love with quality extra virgin olive oil we can bring you a little closer to our homeland.
