Pago de Espejo is the creation of the fourth generation of women olive growers from the Espejo family. In the 1920s, it was the grandmother of the current owner who promoted the purchase of the La Condesa estate, located in Villanueva de la Reina, Jaén. Since then, it has been the women who have helped in the field, in the harvest or in some of the production phases of their extra virgin olive oil of the picual variety. Over the years, the farm prospered and the Espejo family bought the adjacent plots until reaching the 200 hectares they currently have.
In all these years the role of women in this family has been essential for the development of the entire harvest. From generation to generation, the knowledge for the care of the olive tree has been transmitted in order to obtain an extra virgin olive oil of the highest quality, which is also marketed in an attractive design. Red has always been the color that has represented Pago de Espejo, alluding to her native Andalusia, the passion of her work and the magic or “duende” of the south.
The farm, located in Villanueva de la Reina, Jaén, has 200 hectares under the same border, becoming a payment or “”terroir”” that allows them to control the entire production process.
An excellent extra virgin olive oil, early harvest, collected at the beginning of November and elaborated with an absolute exquisiteness. Its EVOO is the result of a meticulous collection and extraction process, where it is ground in the hours after it is collected, it is decanted through a natural process, to finally filter it, thus preserving its incomparable organoleptic properties.
On the nose, the oil presents an intense fruitiness of green olive, with very high notes of fresh grass, olive leaf, green almond and hints of tomato.
On the palate, the freshness of the grass and green fruits have a great appearance with a sweet entry and a slight spicy finish, due to the Picual variety.
