El Olivar is divided into terraces formed by margins of dry stone that are more than 200 years old. The objective of these stone margins, in addition to facilitating the peasant's work, was (and still is) to prevent runoff and thus the escape of nutrients stored by the land. Limestone soils predominate on the land, rich in minerals and nutrients.
TRADITIONAL ORGANIC OLIVE GROVE
The olive grove is rainfed, which means that the only water the tree receives comes from the rain. At Casa Baranku' we firmly believe in the strength of biodiversity and its work in fertilizing the land, which is why NO chemicals of any kind are used. This can be seen in the green blanket that covers our terraces.
SMALL LIKE A DROP OF OIL
Our olive grove is made up of 200 centuries-old olive trees, among which we find two of the native varieties of the Ebro lands: morruda and sevillenca. One of the advantages of being small is that the fruit can be picked by hand without damaging the tree.
BARANKU' VIRGIN EXTRA OLIVE OIL
As mentioned above, our production is very limited. We pick the fruit by hand and press it in stone mills as our ancestors did. The juice resulting from this pressing gives rise to our two monovarieties:
BARANKU' AOVE - SEVILLENCA
An olive that gives rise to sweet virgin olive oils, very fruity, slightly bitter and with an appreciable spiciness. Notes of green apple and banana predominate in its flavor.
BARANKU' AOVE - MORRUDA
Morrut olives give rise to complex oils and a sweet and fruity mid palate that evolves towards contained bitter and spicy sensations.
