Castillo de Canena Reserva Familiar Picual was the unequivocal winner of the Evooleum Guide 2016 Awards. The olive oil-producing history of this family-run business dates back to the year 1780, but it is in 2003 when they take a decisive turn towards producing high-quality EVOOs with which they have managed to position themselves as one of the best producers. The name Castillo de Canena comes from a castle owned by the family that sits on the hill in the municipality of Canena, an Arab construction that was built on a Roman settlement.

The tagline "Reserva Familiar" (Family Batch) of this top-quality EVOO comes from the fact that the family used to keep the best of each harvest, of the Picual and Arbequina cultivars, for their own consumption. Among other reasons for their high quality, the following are crucial: the geological formation of the soil, that is very favorable for this crop; an average altitude of about 400 to 500 meters (1,312 to 1,640 ft.) above sea level, and individual irrigation of each and all of the olive trees.

  • PALATE: Very evident aftertaste to vegetables (tomato, artichoke) and other fruits (apple, banana).
  • USE: Special for salad dressings, tomato soup, gazpacho, ham and cheese, grilled meats.
