Our Olive Oil is harvested organically in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain chain in the Granada province, made famous as the last area the Moors were allowed to settle in after they were ejected from Granada in 1492. The landscape is rich with olive groves segregated into large and small farms or Cortijos, and irrigated by an intricate system of channels first built by the Moors and fed by the mountains above. Each season the countryside comes alive as teams of workers and whole families traditionally harvest the olives. The trees are hit with bamboo poles and the cascading olives are collected in large nets spread on the ground. It’s important to process them quickly to capture the best flavours, and this is what you’ll find in your bottle of Riverside Lifestyle Olive Oil.
