EVOO

FROM THE OLIVE TREE TO YOUR TABLE

Our family has been dedicated to the production of select Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) We love the countryside and nature, so our aim is to produce a wide variety of gourmet, sustainable and environmentally friendly aoves, perfect for pairing with any dish. 

SINGLE VARIETAL EVOO

Discover our extraordinary EVOOs, where quality merges with a deep ecological commitment.

At Peña Luna, we are in transition towards a 100% organic model and all our olive oils are obtained in a sustainable way. Proof of this is our Hojiblanca Ecológico, which has achieved great recognition in the sector, such as a great ECOTRAMA Gold Medal and the Best Organic Evoo from Seville Prize.

MONOVARIETAL EVOO

A Monovarietal EVOO is obtained by grinding only one variety of olive. At Peña Luna we produce Monovarietal EVOOs from early extraction of Hojiblanca, Koroneiki and Arbequina varieties.

COUPAGE

Our Peña Luna Ancestral extra virgin olive oil is obtained from the milling in different proportions of the three varieties of olives (arbequina, hojiblanca and koroneiki). In this way, the flavours and aromas and other complementary aspects of each of the three varieties are combined to produce a unique and differentiated oil.

In our family, we have been carrying on the tradition that started with my grandfather for more than 50 years, Manuel Segura Rodríguez, by producing one coupage a year with the monovarietals of the harvest, in the Ancestral Event.

FLAVOURED OILS

At Peña Luna we do not flavour our EVOOs. Instead, our flavoured oils are obtained by grinding the olives together with garlic, basil, lime or mandarin, in this way we obtain totally unique and original flavours..

HOW DO WE PRODUCE OUR EVOO IN A SUSTAINABLE WAY?

At Peña Luna we seek the preservation of the environment and prioritize quality over quantity. For this reason, we have created a unique production system that allows us to obtain extra virgin olive oil of the highest quality that is sustainable with the environment.

REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE

 

The effects of climate change increasingly affect agriculture, which is why, at Peña Luna, we want to be part of the solution and not the problem.

To do this, we combine technological advances with traditional techniques such as crop rotation and dry-land olive groves to avoid overexploitation of natural resources.

At Peña Luna we only use organic products to take care of our precious olive groves. We have been transitioning towards a 100% organic model for several years and in 2024 we will obtain the organic EVOO certificate for all our varieties.

EARLY EXTRACTION OIL

An Early Extraction EVOO is that which is collected during the months of October and November (depending on the variety) when the olive is still green. This olive gives a lower yield than when it is ripe but its properties are much better. 

In addition, its flavor is more intense and natural than that of a conventional evoo, which is why the use of early extraction extra virgin olive oil is increasingly common in haute cuisine.

PORTABLE ORGANIC OLIVE OIL MILL

As for the extraction process, we continue to innovate by moving the oil mill to the place where we collect the olive, instead of the olive to the oil mill as has traditionally been done. In this way we avoid the time that olives normally spend in a container from the time they are picked until they are taken to the mill and processed.

Thanks to our Portable Organic Olive Oil Mill we extract our EVOOs with freshly picked olives, so we obtain a juice of exceptional quality with an incredible flavor and smell.

OLIVES DO NOT TOUCH THE GROUND

Traditionally, the olives have been harvested using 'shawls', which were placed on the ground to pick the fruit and dragged from olive to olive. The disadvantage of this practice is that it is common to end up stepping on the olives, which worsens the final quality of the olive oil extracted.

To avoid this problem, we have replaced the shawls with a mechanical umbrella that embraces the olive and the manual harvesting of the remaining fruit, so that our precious olives never touch the ground, thus guaranteeing the best quality EVOO at all times.

OUR CORNERSTONES...

SUSTAINABILITY

As people who work in the field, for us it is fundamental that future generations can enjoy a good as precious as Extra Virgin Olive Oil. For this reason, we are greatly concerned about the preservation of the environment and we are determined to continue improving our production system to create an EVOO that helps reverse climate change.

EQUALITY

At Peña Luna, we believe that all people are equal and should have the same rights and opportunities. For this reason, not only are we proud to have a staff made up mostly of women, but one of the objectives of the Peña Luna Foundation is to support women in rural areas and make their enormous work visible.

QUALITY

As EVOO producers, our priority is to create a top quality oil that captivates even the most select palates. Our commitment to quality leads us to carry out tastings every year by Catadores profesionales and to participate in competitions that help us improve our EVOO year after year.
