About Casas de Hualdo:
Casas de Hualdo is a relatively young family business working on 630 hectares with 285 000 olive trees. They planted their first olive tree in 1996 and had their first harvest in 1999. In the year 2009, they opened their mill and this is the point when the Casas de Hualdo story gets exciting. Just a few years later they become one of the most recognised olive oil producers of Spain with countless national and international awards won. We think Casas de Hualdo is the perfect example of finding the balance between utilising the latest technology while maintaining respect for traditions. The result is an exceptional quality olive oil.
This is a great entry-level oil for those who just started experimenting with Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the kitchen. A mild olive oil with fresh aromas of green leaf, green banana and green apple. In the mouth, you will feel the sweetness, then the green fruits and at the end a slight spiciness. We use it raw such as on our salads, dipping or finishing our cooked food, all kinds of pasta, potatoes, fish dishes. For meat dishes, we would use a bit more robust oil. We also love the design of the bottle. In terms of price and value this is one of our best oil.
