Aceite de La Rioja is a Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The olive tree farming is rooted from times ago in Rioja Media, the Cidacos and Alhama Valleys. This quality brand protects the extra virgin olive oil produced, processed and bottled in La Rioja. The acidity of the oil is less than or equal of 0.8 grades and has a fabulous organoleptic property.
