Exclusively produced for Mi Oliva Gourmet. Only available through our website. Out of stock.
First pressed or first cold pressed extra virgin olive oil from the new season 2017/18. Limited production. The oil is produced from the Hojiblanca, Picual and Picuda olive varieties grown in the hundred-year-old grove at Puente Genil: San Miguel’s Olive Grove. The olives are harvested at the ideal moment, when they are yet to ripen and are still green, with an oil yield of 12.9%, (requiring 40% more olives to obtain 1 kilo of oil). This perfectly balanced blend of varieties results in incomparable flavour.
By harvesting the olives when they are green, far less oil can be extracted from them, and as such it is far more expensive. However, it is the point at which they have the highest content of polyphenols, the element that is most beneficial for your health. Polyphenols are excellent for your heart, circulation and for antithrombosis. They work to prevent cancer, ageing, oxidative stress, inflammation and endothelial dysfunction. Few olive oils have the same properties as this authentic, first pressed oil.
Our verdict: Flavour, smoothness and quality that are characteristic of a premium olive oil.
New harvest 2017/2018. First cold pressed.

Why buy Arraigo First Pressed Olive Oil, a premium quality extra virgin oil?
The term first pressed olive oil relates to how extra virgin olive oil was produced when the process was done by hand. An olive press was used and the olive juice extracted during the first pressing of the season was the most exquisite. What are the characteristics of first pressed olive oil today? What’s the difference between first pressed olive oil and normal olive oil? Here are the main points:
- The olives are higher quality. As time goes on, olives over-ripen and start to lose their special qualities.
- Tree shaking is the only technique used to collect the olives. This means the fruit has not yet fallen and comes to the olive press far cleaner than for lesser oils, which are a mix of shaken olives and olives that have already fallen to the ground.
- The result is an extraordinary oil, normally more greenish than golden, and in very limited supply.
