The olive grove where our Nevadillo Negro Temprano comes from is located at 985 feet above sea level, and benefits from a sandy loam soil that favors the harvest of the fruits at their perfect stage of maturity. The harvest usually occurs in the last days of October or early November. Once the olives have been picked, they are milled within two hours, thus guaranteeing the preservation of all their physiochemical and organoleptic properties.
Pago las Monjas is a family project forged in Finca las Monjas, whch is situated within the hills of Andalusia. Aware of the great cultural and architectural heritage they had - the aromas of EVOO were already imbuing the family mill in 1754 - the Prieto Reina family decided to place value in their rich history, reserving every corner of their farm for olive oil tourism and the promotion of oleic culture. The native Nevadillo Negro variety is used as a symbol of distinction.
