Venta del Barón is born from an outburst of jealousy
According to the legend, the Baron de Santaella was sentenced to build, what was the first stone of the Malmuerta tower that became the origin of this unique Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
From the highlands of the PDO (Protected Denomination of Origin) Priego de Córdoba.
The high mountain environment and pure land that surrounds the olive grove, is protected in the middle of the Natural Park of the Sierra de La Subbética Cordobesa. Being located at about 1,000m above sea level gives the olive oil unique properties and an extreme organoleptic complexity.
Made only from olives harvested in an artisanal and traditional way, this results in a natural juice with a unique character. A pure, dense, intense flavor and with a higher content of natural antioxidants.
