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.
‘I’ve always believed in the spirit of achievement and in the importance of courage. First Day of Harvest is, without a doubt, an example of this and of extraordinary effort,’ the World Rally Champion stated firmly.
A natural sportsman, Sainz was only 16 years old when he won the Spanish Squash Championship. He not only loves, but also excels in many sports. The world of rally driving is where he has been internationally recognized as the best driver ever. Carlos Sainz was World Rally Champion in 1990 and 1992. In 2010, this living legend became even bigger when he won the Dakar Rally with Volkswagen, and in 2018 winning with Peugeot.
More recently, in 2020, he attained another two victories when he came first in the new era of the Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia, and then received the Princess of Asturias 2020 Award for Sports.
‘As I have often said throughout my life, I’ve been lucky to have been able to devote myself to what is my passion, and to enjoy every race. I can see that the Vañó family has this same passion for its olive groves, always searching for excellence for its highly-acclaimed extra virgin olive oils,’ explains Sainz.as earned two Goya Awards and a Silver Shell from the San Sebastian Film Festival, among others.
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.
