This exceptional Picual oil is a brilliant golden green color with a fragrance of herbs and artichokes. The first taste has hints of citrus with a bold peppery finish. For the afficionado, this is the finest quality extra virgin olive oil in all of Spain - and perhaps the world!

First Day of Harvest means just that - the Vaño family chooses the peak time for harvesting, just before they are fully ripe. On the very first day, they press the olives, yielding a super fresh olive oil packed with chlorophyll and antioxidants - healthy and incredibly flavorful!

If the olive pickers waited just a few days later, they would have harvested riper olives which would have produced double the amount of olive oil. But the oil would not have been as pristine and flavorful. That is what makes this limited edition oil so special.

Each year’s release has been commemorated with a unique bottle label, designed by a person who represents exceptional qualities. This year, Castillo de Canena selected Fernando Alonso, two time world champion Formula One race car driver and leader of the Ferrari racing team. In his design for the label, Alonso chose the championship wreath and a checkerboard flag hang-tag, symbolizing the hard work and daily sacrifice that are required to win a Formula 1 championship - and to produce an olive oil of this exceptional quality.

Castillo De Canena olive oils are cold pressed by the renowned Vañó family in Andalusia. For centuries, the Vañó family has grown olive trees and pressed them to make olive oil near their 16th century castle in the foothills of the Sierra Mágina. The company takes its name from the castle itself.

Castillo de Canena carefully supervises their olive groves and hand selects olives at the peak time for producing olive oil with the perfect balance of aroma and flavor.
