Regional Olive Tours
In the area of El Camp de Tarragona olive oil has been being produced for more than a thousand years and for several years it has been the holder of the Siurana Protected Designation of Origin.
Siurana is an extra-virgin olive oil obtained from Arbequina, Royal and Morrut olive varieties, produced in the Province of Tarragona, on the Mediterranean coast. The olives are harvested by hand and are immediately transferred to the oil mill to be cold-pressed within 72 hours.
Depending on the time of harvesting, two types of Siurana are available on the market. When the olives are harvested early, Siurana is green and has a fruity flavour and bitter almondy aroma. If the olive oil is yellowish, then it is obtained from olives harvested later and tastes sweet.
It is a full-bodied oil with well-balanced flavours and has a pleasant scent of ripe olives. Its fruity flavour makes it an ideal oil for salads, aiolis, delicate sauces and char-grilled food.
