Thus began 108 years of history and was born from a family tradition that for four generations has passed from father to son. Throughout these years, the Alfonso Mill has evolved and adapted to constant technological advances.
Modernized process from the harvesting of the olive and its grinding, to the packaging of the oil and its sale. This has remained unchanged over time, always in the spirit of always obtaining a quality product.

Organic Olive Oil
Based on respect for the environment and the earth, from certified organic farming, our Organic Olive Oil is extracted, from the Empeltre and Arbequina varieties.
It occurs in early November and ends in February. The olives are sought at their optimum point of maturation, with the highest possible aromatic and gustatory expression. They then enter the mill, and are selected according to their quality, variety and degree of maturity.
They are then cleaned, washed and weighed to grind them the same day they are collected. This is the only way to guarantee that the oil we produce has maximum freshness and low acidity.
We use a hammer mill to turn the olives into a homogeneous paste, which we will beat at a constant temperature, never higher than 28º if we want to consider it as “cold extraction”.
From the oil mill to your table
Let us remember that olive oil is a “living” and perishable product, and in fact, quite “fragile”, very sensitive to oxygen, heat and light. Especially if it is Extra Virgin, and it is not preserved properly, we will lose the most precious thing they contain, the Polyphenols.
