Almazaras de la Subbetica is situated in the Sierras Subbeticas Nature Reserve, an area protected by the Junta de Andalucía (regional government). The terrain, characterized by steep slopes and sheer heights is comprised of beautiful and narrow valleys.
Their farmers have managed to overcome the many obstacles presented by the rugged terrain of the plantations and the associated increased cost of tilling and harvesting. With the modernization of farming techniques, and the use of small, modern machinery while maintaining commitment to the highest quality, they have managed to blend the best of tradition and latest technologies to deliver the premium quality demanded by our most exacting consumers.
Almazaras de la Subbética, and the cooperatives merged to create it, have received numerous awards and recognitions throughout history. This not only owes to the quality of their oils, but for their track record in continuous improvement, innovation, and respect for the environment.
