We are artisan producers of olive oil in the Eastern Algarve. Monterosa Extra Virgin Olive Oil has its origin in the 20 hectares of olive groves in Moncarapacho. We pick the olives by hand in autumn and immediately take them to our press which dates from roman times, where they are ground to paste in a granite stone mill. The oil is then extracted with state of the art modern equipment, filtered and stored in stainless steel containers until it is bottled. The result is an olive oil of the highest quality: Monterosa Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
