Lagarde’s olive oil comes directly from the beautiful fruit of the olive orchards that surround our century old vineyards.
Each olive is extracted at a low temperature before beingprocessed under the Toscano method. This continuous and precise process ensures the highest purity and quality of the product, creating a completely natural and pure extra-virgin olive oil.
The acidity level of our oils is less than 0.3%, which is an example of the excellence and purity of our premium oil.

It is a blend when it´s manufactured using different varieties of olives with the goal of procuringoil to possess a special flavor and aroma, with its own identity.
