Oliana Organic and Biodynamic EVOO is a very characteristic olive juice by Cortijo el Puerto: soft and tasty it has the aftertaste and quality of the rich and balanced ecosystem where it comes from.
In October 2016, Cortijo el Puerto presented EVOO Oliana as a world first. This new variety of olive displayed in 2014 after fifteen years of studies and experimentation. It is the fruit of a genetic improvement programme which began at Barcelona-based high-tech nursery Agromillora. After confirming its high agronomic potential and optimal adaptation to the hedgerow system, in the same season of its launch, Cortijo el Puerto planted Oliana variety. It went into production in 2016, its second year, offering a small fruit size similar to that of its parents and providing a balanced and harmonic EVOO.

Biodiversity and a Jenny named Oliana
Cortijo el Puerto supports biodiversity, protects, promotes and encourages it. Biodiversity in fauna and flora, and also in olive varieties. 11 olive varieties in the farm, of which, 8 has been released this year in our “Granja” (“Farm”) series, all of them organic and biodynamic.
Reflection of biodiversity and ecosystem integration, we have chosen as image of each olive variety, one of the animals of the farm, normally linked to its habitat area. Thus, Oliana is represented by a Jenny (donkey), Oliana, that you can meet at our farm.
Our jenny Oliana grazes and collaborates with the cleaning and browsing activities. She lives with her donkey family in a rich and healthy environment.
The biodynamic agriculture of which Oliana olives are fruit, entails a philosophy of life. It is a higher step in organic farming. A farm with Olive, Almond and Citrus grove, integrated organic livestock-crop production system, framed in a global biodiversity recovery and regeneration environmental project.
The prevention measures, land care and soil protection, the way to control pests, harvest time…all of them are determining factors for the organoleptic features, composition and quality of food.
