As Pontis olive oil
More than 200 recognitions, an incentive to continue with our AOVE Vieiru, the gastronomic treasure of Extremadura.
Almazara “As Pontis” began in November 2008 with the aim of producing an extra virgin olive oil from excellent quality.
In addition, it was proposed that all the activities followed during the production process respect the environment.
Dedicated to the production of its own brand of extra virgin olive oil, VIEIRU.
Aceites As Pontis has thus become one of the most technologically advanced mills in Spain and the most advanced in Extremadura.
Therefore, we invite you to get to know our extra virgin oil 100% Manzanilla Cacereña that we have achieved with such care.
As Pontis Philosophy
Respect for the environment is a priority in our project, committed to the sustainability and evolution of Sierra de Gata. Therefore, the main objective of As Pontis is to continue innovating in the Extra Virgin Olive Oil sector.
In this way, promote the EVOO culture with oleotourism, in addition to continuing to work on product excellence.
In addition, we have a biomass boiler and a treatment plant that eliminates 100% of toxic waste.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil production process
From harvest to packaging, the fundamental raw material of our extra virgin olive oil is Manzanilla Cacereña.
Our monovarietal EVOO comes exclusively from this native olive variety grown in the Sierra de Gata and Hurdes regions.
The Manzanilla Cacereña olive gives our extra virgin olives an excellent quality, differentiating them from other varieties.
It is harvested in its optimal state of maturation directly from the tree by “milking” (by hand), so that the olive does not suffer.
We offer the possibility of specialized tastings in hotels or fairs, and demonstrations of our EVOOs in haute cuisine.
In this way, our mill is a factory open to the public, bringing the EVOO closer to school groups, tourists, etc.
