Quinta do Noval has approximately 26 hectares devoted to olive groves that are field blends of different Portuguese olive varieties. The main ones are: Cordovil, Madural, Verdeal and Galega.
The olives are grown traditionally with no irrigation and pruning is done by hand. To extract the best quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the fruits are cold-pressed. Many Quinta do Noval's olive trees are more than 200 years old. Therefore, they produce a richer and more complex olive oil with only 0.2% acidity.
Harmonious and fine, spicy and fresh, our Olive oil is an authentic expression of the terroir of Quinta do Noval.
