Oli Fontclara Palau-Sator
The Finca Fontclara, located in the heart of the Baix Empordà, between the charming medieval towns of Peratallada, Palau-sator, Ullastret and Pals (popularly known as the golden triangle of the Empordà), has several fields scattered around the area between rice fields and fruit trees. It is a privileged place on the Costa Brava, blessed by a microclimate on land with high production power: it is a kind of architectural and natural golden mile from which the best liquid treasure is born: Fontclara extra virgin olive oil.
The farm's sustainable approach is a hallmark of Fontclara. Extra virgin olive oil is produced in a respectful and ecological way. Currently some 8,000 olive trees are cultivated on 60 hectares of land, many of them hundred-year-old trees. There are olives of the Arbequina, Picual, Argudell and Fantoio varieties (the latter is not yet in production), of which only the best specimens are preserved after a meticulous manual selection process.
They are processed immediately after the harvest, at the end of September or beginning of October, in the same oil mill on the estate with a Mori mill, coming from Italy, using the latest technology to optimize the quality of the oil. The entire production process of Fontclara extra virgin olive oil takes place on the farm itself and immediately after the harvest, thus guaranteeing the preservation of the organoleptic characteristics of the best extra virgin olive oil.
The Fontclara team has a common goal, which goes far beyond producing the best extra virgin olive oil: teaching and sharing all the secrets about this oil and its territory with all those who share this passion. That is why Finca Fontclara hosts experiences related to this elixir, in an always familiar and welcoming environment, which allows you to discover not only the secrets of olive oil, but also a wonderful landscape.
