Organic extra virgin olive oil from La Rioja, Spain, produced with the limited-production olives from our own olive groves.
Environmentally-friendly techniques and strict quality controls warrant its exquisite flavor and intense aroma
The unique blend of our olive varieties (empeltre, royuela, arbequine and machona), harvested by hand, along with the care taken in their first pressing, make the carpeum olive oil unique.
Tradition and Family
carpeum is a three-generation family project of olive oil production that has become our passion. We are always looking for simplicity and naturalness, making every effort to achieve what we believe in
Our plantation consists of different varieties of olive trees, some of which older than 200 years of age. The recovery of these old trees keeping their genetic heritage makes it possible to extract the olive essence from past centuries. Our oil comes from healthy olives, in their optimal degree of ripeness, and it is cold-pressed using mechanical procedures only, which ensure its optimal quality.
Ecology and Quality
Our production is environmentally-friendly, aiming at optimal quality while always taking into account our origin. We use organic cultivation methods, that is, we do not use any chemical fertilizers, herbicides or any other product that produces toxic waste. Samples from our crops are periodically controlled by the authorities and analyzed in official labs. Harvesting is carried out in several phases, in small consignments, which allows for a better control of quality levels throughout the process.
The guarantee of all our work processes is controlled and inspected by the Regulatory Board of Organic Agricultural Production of La Rioja (Consejo Regulador de la Producción Agraria Ecológica de La Rioja – CPAER), and certified with the corresponding guarantee label.
The quality of our product is endorsed by the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) Olive from La Rioja. Certification body: Quality Selection by the Department of Agriculture, Farming and Environmental Affairs.
Our carpeum oil was awarded the ECOTRAMA SILVER MEDAL 2013 in the XII edition of the international tasting-contest of Extra Virgin Olive Oils from Organic Agriculture held in Córdoba.
The Regulatory Council of the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) Oil of La Rioja has awarded carpeum the second prize for the best oil of La Rioja 2019 in the "Ecological" category, within the III edition of the Awards for the Best Oil of La Rioja that have been held in Logroño.
