Molino del Aire, the oil mill
Ciudad Real oil, clay soil, Picual variety olive, rainfed cultivation, dry climate with little rainfall, many hours of sunshine and extreme temperatures. Early harvest and cold extraction. The Picual variety is the one with the highest concentration of polyphenols and other healthy components. Hence its greater stability and better flavor, with its bitter and spicy, indicators of its quality.
We use olive leaves for animal feed and olive kerns, due to its high calorific value, for biomass. We also apply fertilizers from the olive grove itself, treated alperujo. Finally, industries such as cosmetics and pharmaceuticals reuse waste from the olive grove. The use of recyclable packaging is another important factor.
Family project to position a Villamanrique Premium EVOO in the market, with a fair price, which is due to production costs and low productivity of cold processing (low fat yield).
In summary, Sustainable Organic farming, Healthy Eating and Rural Development are our basic values in this project.
