Like good wine, olive oil is nurtured and cared for so that each vintage reaches perfection. Olive groves hundreds of years old, rather than vineyards, canopy the hillsides of Spain to gain the most of the intense Mediterranean sun and to ensure that the olives ripen to full maturity. When ready, they are pressed with tender care and bottled as LA RAMBLA finest olive oils.

Understanding the “olive oil language” means we know which type of olive oil to use for which style of cooking, making sure that the flavours and styles blend in harmony, much like a good Bordeaux Cabernet and a tender beef casserole. LA RAMBLA has been preparing the best Mediterranean oil for many years.
