Somos raíces

The Deortegas organic extra virgin olive oils are the fresh and delicate products of a healthy mixture of ideas and dreams, hard work and deep care and respect for the earth.

The Deortegas family have been farmers for many generations and for the last 30 years have produced entirely organic olives in the traditional non-intensive way. Over 10 years ago we committed to creating our own oil mill and through this have discovered the true essence of our olives.

In 2008 Marcelo Ortega and Rafaela Ortega created their own oil mill with a very clear objective, to produce delicious organic extra virgin olive oil of the highest quality and to cultivate and produce this in the traditional way with the greatest possible respect for the natural environment and inspired by a true love of the olive.

We are the second generation, passionate about this very special family project and motivated by the desire to return to the land. Committed to respectful agriculture we continue caring for the fruit that we have watched grow from small to produce something that we are part of and that also tells our story.

In 170 hectares of traditionally cultivated, organic land we care for 33,000 olive trees of all ages. Spread between three estates (2 unwatered and 1 irrigated) these are all planted in the traditional non-intensive 8x7 metre pattern.

In this place, with the incomparable combination of the earth, the sun and the Mediterranean air, we cultivate the four varieties of fruit Arbequina, Picual, Cornicabra and Hojiblanca.
