First Day of Harvest 2018 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. This year’s label created by prolific writer and winner of the 1987 Planet award, Juan Estate Galan.
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 13th 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.
