Uncompromising in their standards and with a real taste for perfection, British sisters Wizzy and Tara are leading the way in the UK with a new era of world class multi-award winning extra virgin olive oils. Picualia Olive Oil is so good, it's now partnered with the World's 50 best Michelin Star restaurants and is endorsed by the wonderfully talented Monica Galetti.
Monica says, "The flavour and quality of Picualia Oils captured my attention from the first tasting. Immediately I knew this was something special and I just had to have it at MERE. I use Picualia in everything from dressing to cooking or simply as a dip for bread. It's such a versatile ingredient"
Less than 0.4 acidity. Fruity, mild and creamy taste with distinct taste of almonds - medium pepperiness. Ideal used in sauces, salads, drizzling and ideal for baking, sautéeting and grilling.

Picualia Gourmet Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 500ml
"This is the best Spanish olive oil I have ever tasted-really beautiful."
Chef Francesco Mazzei, The Times
"Unlike most supermarket oils, Picualia is a really fresh, high quality oil. Once you've tasted it, you won't want anything else! Could literally drink it from a shot-glass."
Elisa Roche, Food Director TiMedia (Woman & Home, Home & Gardens)
"Bright green, full bodied, with a faint peppery flavour, I choose Picualia for finishing and dipping."
Gizzi Erksine, Chef and TV personality
"Picualia's olive oil is wonderfully bright and fruity with a real richness of flavour; fresh and grassy with a hint of sun-warmed tomatoes on the vine. I often use it in dressings or simply enjoy with homemade bread."
Anna Burleigh, Senior buyer at Harvey Nichols, London
"A wonderful range of well-balanced oils with a smooth Moorish texture. I particularly love the 'First day of Harvest' and happily add to every dish."
Beth Parker, Buyer, Selfridges, London.
"This excellent oil shows the Picual variety at its very best. The flavours are complex and distinctive with all elements showing a really harmonious character."
Judy Ridgeway, olive oil expert and author, on Picualia Premium
"An exceptional high-quality exquisite tasting EVOO with a sublime spice and perfect pepperiness."
Dr Simon Poole, Author '"The Olive diet'
More than seventy years ago, a dedicated community of farmers came together to form a co-operative.
Their vision was to not only produce one of the finest quality extra virgin olive oils in the world, but to create a sustainable business to support the whole community.
Those age-old values of quality and sustainability still drive Picualia today.
Picualia’s award-winning mill is eco-friendly and fully sustainable. And one of a kind in Spain. Olive stones heat not only the mill, but the homes of the local community, through biomass systems.
Today, more than 950 farmers are part of the Picualia family. The mill processes up to 30 million kilos of olives and produces around 5 million kilos of oil each year.
Each year a percentage of the sales from Picualia’s unique limited edition ‘First Day of Harvest’ go to support a local charity, working to preserve the ecology and culture of the region.
