Our History Casas De Hualdo Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Almost ten years later in 1996 he started an ambitious transformation of the farm, successively planting up to 300,000 olive trees. The favorable conditions of the area and the painstaking dedication to look after it, have made the crop generous to us, providing us with a delicate olive of unique quality.
Only with great respect and knowledge of the area, uniting the peaceful enjoyment of the countryside with state-of-the-art agricultural management techniques, have the most appreciated attributes of this thousand-year old fruit been able to express themselves.
This olive oil sets out to be a simple homage from his family and all those who have had the privilege to work with him to the unique figure of Francisco Riberas, who did not live to see the conclusion of this project.
Cornicabra Casas de Hualdo
This is the most traditional varietal in our area, where experience makes virtue. Through a careful pressing at the mill we obtain this oil with a high amount of antioxidants.
This native varietal is not only valued for its agricultural hardiness, but also for the high quality of the oils obtained from it.
It is the only varietal protected by the Designation of Origin Montes de Toledo, to which we belong.
Due to its resistance to our cold winters and hot summers, Cornicabra has been, since ancient times, the dominant variety in Castille -La Mancha.
Casas de Hualdo Cornicabra is produced from our olive groves located at the highest altitude in lighter, more-calcareous soils.
