Ronda organic olive oil – one of world’s best

AN estate, where the King of Spain is said to have stayed, has been named as one of the world’s best olive oil producers.

Finca La Amarilla, near Ronda, where Prince Felipe has also taken holidays, has been listed in the top 20 in the world by major Italian guide Flos Olei.

Its LA Organic oil is one of three Spanish brands in the list.

It was awarded 90 points out of a possible 97 by a panel of experts on a quest to find the best olive oil from 40 different countries. Over 600 oils have been tasted.

Oil was first produced at the finca 200 years ago by a community of nuns.

In the 1990s the Gomez de Baeza family bought the land and took over the production.

  1. the amount of olives taking from the ronda site is so small that they never can make that huge amount of liters of oil as they are selling…. The biggest amount of oil used in this oil is coming from the big commercial fincas in the cordoba area…..

    How do I know ?… Have a look at the finca outside ronda…. it is not big enough.. 5 to 8 kilo per liter of oil….. and some insider information also helps.. ;-)

  2. If you take the road from ronda to seville ( A 374 ), when goiing down hill in a left curve is at the right a little road, follow signs to fuente la higuera, whenn approaching that hotel you will see signs from la amarilla. There are some olives but never de never that amount which provides the litres they sell in a year…. This is a google maps link to the hotel and amarilla next to it “http://maps.google.nl/maps?q=hotel+ronda&hl=nl&ie=UTF8&ll=36.784525,-5.162909&spn=0.008404,0.021136&client=firefox-a&hq=hotel&hnear=Ronda,+M%C3%A1laga,+Andalusi%C3%AB,+Spanje&t=h&fll=36.78394,-5.167007&fspn=0.008404,0.029311&z=16”
