This spectacular pair of extra virgin oils comes exclusively from olives cold pressed on the very first day of the harvest. Brilliant green and bursting with bright fresh olive flavor, both of these delicious oils are among the best we have ever tried.

Fruity arbequina oil has complex aromas and flavors of green apple and fresh herbs and finishes with a gentle hint of spice, great for dipping with bread. Bold, full flavored picual is a golden green color with fragrances of artichokes, basil and rosemary and a peppery finish, perfect for dressing salads.

You've probably never tasted this kind of olive oil as it is produced in very small quantities, usually for personal use. It is very costly to make, for if the grower waits just a few days longer until the olive is fully mature and plump, they will get a much higher volume of juice from the same olive.

Knowing that the barely ripe olive yields the best of the vintage, the Vañó family of La Castilla de Canena is not willing to take that short cut for volume. They set aside a portion of the harvest, hand pick the olives as early as is possible and bottle the brilliant green juice.

The distinctive red bottles block out all light that might compromise the flavor. For the discerning food lover, this is a once a year chance to enjoy the best of the best. It is an exclusive and limited edition released by the Vañó family.

Each year’s pressing is commemorated with a newly designed bottle label, created by a person from Spain who has excelled in their field. This year, Castillo de Canena chose Fernando Alonso, two time world champion Formula 1 race car driver and leader of the Ferrari team. In his illustration for the label, Alonso chose the championship wreath, along with a checkerboard flag hang-tag, to symbolize the hard work and daily sacrifice that are required to win a Formula 1 championship - and to create an olive oil of this exceptional quality.

Castillo De Canena olive oils are produced by the renowned Vañó family in Andalusia. For centuries, the Vañó family has lived in their 16th century castle in the foothills of the Sierra Mágina, surrounded by rolling fields covered with olive trees. The company takes its name from the castle itself.

The owners carefully supervise their olive groves and hand select olives at the peak time for producing olive oil with the perfect balance of aroma and flavor.

EUGENE QUINTANO - ENCINO, CA  5 Star Rating
"Really enjoying this. Worked on and off for four years and just the scent reminded me of being there."

Mamen  5 Star Rating
"Both Picual and Arbequina are amazing, aromatic, dense, unforgettable. It is very different and much more intense than the typical extra virgen. Educated palates will enjoy them the most."
