The incredible olive oils from Masía el Altet are created from centuries old olive trees that have been cared for through generations. They are located right off the Mediterranean Sea, in the Alicante Mountains of Valencia. Where their fields sit in Italy is the ideal climate for creating the highest quality olives in the world and their award winning olive oils are the proof.
When the current owner, Jorge Petit, inherited the estate, his goal was to bottle an olive oil that could encapsulate the genuine essence of his universe. He quickly understood that in order to do that, he needed to preserve his family traditions and embrace current agricultural practices. From this idea, four unique olive oils were born: High Quality, Premium, Special Selection and High End.
Olives often reach maturity at varying times but Masía El Altet is patient. They wait until the perfect moment for each olive tree to be picked and then immediately take the olives to their oil mill. Using the latest technology, they extract the juices and keep everything at low temperatures. The olive oils are then stored in stainless steel tanks in their air conditioned storeroom before being bottled.
Temperature is one of the key factors in making Masía El Altet’s olive oil such high quality. To this end, they engineered further refrigeration systems into their tanks that store the olive oil. This innovation ensures a constant temperature of 13 to 15ºC while the oil is protected from oxidation with nitrogen.
