First Day of Harvest 2019 extra virgin olive oil pays homage to the magic of the first day, when the farmer sees the fruit of a year´s labours. Castillo de Canena designs a new label every year, with the invaluable help of personalities from the worlds of culture. Designed by actor Juan Echanove, the label captures the feelings of an actor before, during and after the experience of performing onstage
100% Picual– this extra virgin olive oil is intense and has complex flavors that reminds us of green almond, green grass, banana peel, artichoke, tomato plant, vine stems, and green apple. Bitter and spicy more prominent but well integrated and very balanced.
Producer Francisco Vañó “The First Day of Harvest—both Arbequino and Picual—are oils that come from specially selected orchards on our property: the Cañada Luenga Centro for the Picual First Day and Entrecaminos for the Arbequino First Day.” This year marks the 14th edition of Castillo de Canena First Day of Harvest, the extraordinary result of a whole year of effort by the olive-growers, and an homage to the mystique of the very first pressing of the harvest, with all its magic and joy.
