Another great year for olives out of our Valero grove, possibly a result of the unusual Spring weather which brought exceptional, but actually welcome, rain. Our 75 trees produced 1075 kilos of olives – a blend of Manzanilla and Blanqueta varieties. In harvesting we were helped by guests from England David, Tim, Jackie and Tess.
Aftre gathering from the trees,the olives some green, some turning and others black, the ideal time to harvest, we delivered straight to the ‘Almassera de Relleu’ and 165 litres of extra virgin olive oil arrived that evening. Jordi at the Olive press commented on the high quality of the oil – now available 35 euros for 5 litres.
