OLIVES OIL AND VINEGAR
In our plant we have the latest 21 st century technology, so we can offer not only the best quality, but also the best quality – price relation.
Our extra virgin olive oil – Reova- is extracted only through a mechanical process in cold temperature, so the result is Genuine Natural Juice from the olive tree.
The excellence in the character of this upper class Olive Oils range come from its differences in origin. We actually have four different types of Extra Virgin Olive Oils: Arbequina, Picual, Hojiblanca and Selección. We also have Kosher Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
The vinegar – Tonavi – is the result of the natural acetification process of our wines, wich have been meticulously produced to obtain the finest quality. These are then aged in barrels, resulting in first – rate vinegars with a distinctive flavour, indispensable for fine Mediterranean cooking.
The latest technology currently follows a method of submerged fermentation together with the traditional method of ageing in oak barrels, wich further guarantees the excellence of our vinegars.We have three differents kinds of vinegar: Balsamic vinegar, White wine vinegar and red wine vinegar.
The range of products have differents presentations, glass bottle ( 250 ml, 500 ml and 750 ml ), Pet ( 1 l, 2 l and 5 l ) and our special formats ( serigrafiaph glass bottle) for delicatessen and gourmet.
D.O VINOS DE MADRID
Since the early 1990s, Madrid’s wines have achieved a greater role.It finally became posible for Madrid, apart from being a large consumer of quality wines, to offer the market wines from its own vineyards, covered by the Denomination of Origin Vinos de Madrid.
This body covers most of the vines planted in Madrid, wich occupy the southern part of the province, divided into three sub-areas: Arganda, Navlacarnero and San Martin de Valdeiglesias. The percentaje of registered vines is rather high, wich proves the interes shown by Madrid’s wine growers in promoting their wines.
They are workink steadily to try to become a relevant wine area on an European scale. The local vineyardsare the object of experiments that combine research and training in an ceaseless effort to improve the grapes.
The production area, wich includes 11.758 hectares of vineyards, is divided into three sub – areas, mainly located in the southern part of the province of Madrid.
The wineries, with the support and advice of the Regulatory Council, are making an enormous effort in improving harvesting and production, gradually changing the previous poor image of the area. These changes are being reflected in the market, where the number of available brands is slowly increasing.
The production area comprises 54 municipalities in the south of Madrid, plus the El Encín estate in Alacalá de Henares, and is divided into three sub-areas with their own individula characteristics:
• Arganda Sub – Area: It is the largest of the three, comprising 26 municipalities in the south – east of the province of Madrid. Half of the vines registered with the Regulatory Council are located in this subzone.
• Navalcarnero Sub – Area: Consist of 19 municipalities located in the centre of the D.O Vinos de Madrid, where slightly more than 14% of the total vineyards controlled by the Regulatory Council area to be found.
• San Martin de Valdeiglesias: It includes nine municipalities in the southwest of the province, wich contribute slightly more than 35% of the vines registered under the D.O Vinos de Madrid.
Highly continental with cold winters and hot summers. There is little rainfall, mostly concentrated in the spring and autumn, and usually accompained by southwesterly winds.
Mean temperature: 13,7°C.
Rainfall: 450 mm/year.
Average hours of sunshine: 2800 hours of direct sunlight a year.
In the Arganda sub-area the vines are planted preferably on clay-marl terraces with a considerable amount of limestone in
some places. In Navalcarnero, the soil is predominantly brown, with little lime content and with high moisture retention in
some parts. In the San Martin de Valdediglesias sub-area, brown topsoil over granite is more abundant. The common trait in all cases is the soil’s poor fertility.
Registered area under vine: 11.758 ha. Vine spacing: between 900 and 4.000 vines/ha. Varieties: Airen, Malvar, Albillo, Viura or Macabeo, Torronte and Parellada, in whites. In blacks: Tempranillo, Garnacha, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Maximum authorised production: between 7.000 and 8.000 kg/ha.
