Olive oils
for health and enjoyment

The olive oils of Olival da Risca are exclusively "extra virgin" - each one a first class organic olive oil with Demeter quality. Being untreated natural products of the highest quality, these olive oils are obtained with the utmost care from olives that have reached their optimum ripeness.The olives are first milled immediately after harvest in our farm's own oil mill and then undergo gentle cold extraction. This procedure ensures that all the valuable ingredients of the olives are conserved, resulting in excellent olive oils with intense green to golden yellow color, a fruity taste and a characteristic flavor.

Primeur
Strong Olive Oil
Extremely high polyphenol content, high in unsaturated fatty acids. A sharp finish with an intense fruity flavour. Limited availability - only available for a short time from November. This strong and modern olive oil derives its character from the early-ripening green olives of the first days of the harvest.

Antique
Limited Edition
This extra virgin olive oil is obtained from 200 to 800 year old trees in our oldest olive groves of the Galega Grada de Serpa and Gamenha varieties. The olive oil can therefore only be produced in a limited quantity of 4,000 bottles.

Already the Romans cultivated olive trees in the region of Serpa and transported their liquid gold to Italy. The time-honoured trees with their knobby trunks are nowadays rarities in the Alentejo region.
250ml | 100ml
Lemon
Lemon Flair
Ripening at the same time as our olives on our estate, our lemons are freshly picked from the tree and mixed with the olives during the production process.
The fresh flavour of lemon is added to this olive oil at the oil mill where the olives and lemons are processed together.

Recommended for use with fish, salads, pasta and baking or simply as a dip.
250ml | 100ml
Mandarin
Touch of Mandarin
Our citrus orchards also grow juicy tangerines that are added during the extraction process to produce this special olive oil. The fresh and fruity character of this olive oil is derived from mandarins which are processed with the olives at our oil mill.

Recommended for use in Asian cuisine, with red meat and in chocolate desserts or simply as a dip.
100ml
Basilicum
Basil Tones
This olive oil derives its freshness from freshly picked basil leaves, plucked from our farm's own herb garden.

Recommended for use with tomatoes, salads, pasta and cheese or simply as a dip.
250ml | 100ml
Garlic
Garlic Nuance
Fresh garlic gives this olive oil its Mediterranean character and makes it the ideal accompaniment for tomatoes, salads and pasta. Or simply serve on its own as a dip. The addition of whole garlic cloves to the olives in the oil mill infuses the garlic flavor directly and in a balanced way with the olive oil.
100ml
Chili
Cayenne Pep
A whole field of cayenne pepper plants in the middle of one of our olive orchards provides the red and slender chillies for the production of this olive oil. Freshly harvested and processed at the same time as the olives, these chillies give this olive oil its special peppery pep.

Recommended for those who like spicy food and dips.
100ml
Mediterranean Herbs
Hint of Herb
For this speciality of high quality olive oil we process organic herbs grown at Risca Grande together with our olives.
A bouquet of perfectly balanced Mediterranean herbs gives this olive oil its very special flavor.

Compliance with the organic standards is regularly checked by an independent control body.
What is IFS Food?
The IFS Food certification for the production of olive oil at Risca Grande guarantees to our customers our compliance with strict food safety standards. The provisions by which we can guarantee the highest standards of food quality and hygiene in our oil mill are always documented and audited annually by an independent inspection body. For example, we record the whole production process carefully, so that the origin of each olive oil is traceable from the bottle to the olive grove - in line with our philosophy to produce a healthy food with transparency and honesty.
What is Demeter?
Demeter stands for biodynamic agriculture and is a holistic approach which goes beyond the requirements of organic agriculture. This philosophy is based on the idea of connecting the earth with the cosmic forces and of looking at a farm as an organism with closed circuits. In line with the biodynamic approach it is important to us to cultivate the soil as a living being, and to make our property as diverse as possible. Although we specialise in olive oil, we also keep cows, bees, citrus fruits and herbs on our estate. In addition, we promote biodiversity by cultivating hedges.
