ALMA DE JEREZ: ARBEQUINA AND SELECTION
The climatic peculiarities, the properties of the soil in which it is born, the variety of this fruit, the choice of the optimal moment of collection and the care it receives. Multiple factors make a small green colored olive of early maturation, known as Arbequina, transform into an oil with the colour of gold and green hues, labeled as Alma de Jerez Arbequina.
Being in total control of the product and able to trace it from the beginning to the end of the process, at Alma de Jerez we combine the mechanized production of the Arbequina variety with the excellence in the integral production within our estate. To produce this unique juice, the olives are collected during the nighttime. The obtaining process in the low night temperature and the procedures of natural decantation in a few hours allow us to preserve all the original aromas of the oil and the freshness of its fruit. This way of understanding the production of extra virgin olive oil, in search of the best qualities and sensory profiles, gives rise to Alma de Jerez Selection, an essential coupage in the kitchen of every gourmet. Thanks to the incorporation of the Arbosana variety, aromatic flavour and stable fat yield, it is possible to achieve balance as well as complexity in this EVOO.

HISTORY AND INNOVATION
Combining advanced mechanized production techniques to obtain the Arbequina variety with our technified Arbosana olive crops, natural and unique EVOOs emerge. But it was not always so, since in past times, the farm was a meadow that became payment for the cultivation of the vine, thanks to the arrival of English winemakers in Jerez in the nineteenth century. At present, our more than 700 hectares that are in operation, with a million and a half planted olive trees, have been transformed to the super intensive Arbequina cultivation, mainly, with a support in the Arbosana variety, to make a pure olive juice that meet the expectations of the most refined and expert palates.
