Since 1780, the Castillo de Canena estate has been producing exceptional oils in the Guadalquivir Valley of Andalusia in the south of Spain. Their Family Reserve oils are produced from olives that have been harvested early, a process that requires twice the amount of olives and renders an oil of exceptional quality, taste, and aroma. The Arbequina oil has a sweet almond and green apple flavor, while the Picual oil has a full green olive flavor with hints of tomato and fresh cut grass.
Every year, Castillo releases a new First Day of Harvest XV olive oil, in both Arbequina and Picual, with an elegant label designed by a well-known Spanish artist.

Castillo de Canena, a family owned business, takes its name from the family castle nestled in the hills of the township of Canena, in Spain’s Jaen province in the region of Andalusia, the largest olive producing region in the world. The company’s olive producing history dates back to 1780.
At Castillo de Canena, the tree’s natural life cycle is nurtured, combining traditional wisdom with cutting-edge technology and scrupulous respect for the environment. The groves are Integrated Production certified, a sustainable farming system using natural resources and regulating mechanisms to replace polluting inputs, improve soil fertility and diversify the environment.
Watch this beautiful video on Castillos de Canena’s historic farm and production:
Nine precision agricultural weather stations control variations in the diameter of the tree trunks, the climatological conditions, the soil and humidity in the area with a view to optimizing water resources available for irrigation. The electric power needed to run the orchard is obtained by onsite solar energy plants and all prunings are used for biomass. In addition, Castillo de Canena is the first Integrated Producer of olive oil capable of monitoring its carbon footprint.
