A friend recommended Xertoli oil to us and after our first tasting, we added it to our collection. From generations-old family olive producers, this first cold pressed olive oil embodies excellence that comes with years of experience. This coupage blends Sevillenca, Farga and Morruda olive oil, achieving a beautiful balance of fruity and buttery notes with a healthy spice at the finish.
The Cugat family’s olives are grown in Les Borges Blanques in Catalonia where they thrive under extreme temperature shifts from cold winters to dry, scorching summers. During harvest, the olives are collected and processed in less than 8 hours in order to extract the finest quality oil. This fresh, first press oil exemplifies the superior quality of Xertoli.
The Cugat siblings, long time descendants from the Ebro Delta in the Provence of Catalonia, commercialized their family olive groves to share their high-quality oil with the world. Today, Xertoli oil is used by top chefs across Spain.
