Carefully cold-milled and with a very careful control of timing, our olives undergo a transformation from fresh fruit to authentic ‘olive juice’ in the hands of our Oil Masters. Our cellar, which is equipped with temperature control system and stainless steel tanks, guarantees our olive oils have lost none of their organoleptic characteristics at the moment of bottling-packaging.
The bottling in the property (Estate bottled olive oils) differentiates us from most other oils, thus guaranteeing our customers the pleasure of an excellent taste. We adhere to a permanent commitment in regards to our Extra Virgin Olive Oil´s quality, without skimping on efforts; we do not shake the trees or pick the olives off the ground, pressing is done on the same day as the picking, it is cold pressed (without chemical or thermal treatment), our oil then goes on to our hygienically prepared warehouse and through a meticulous bottling and labelling procedure, then it is ready to be tasted.
La Jaraba is an enclosed estate within a sole perimeter, which facilitates the development of its crops and exploitations without any interference from other adjoining estates, allowing agronomic unity and, above all, planning.
We should emphasise that the “Pago” is a site-location of land located on extraordinary soil and with a microclimate that favours the growth of a certain types of crops, which develop better quality and enhance their qualities, resulting in products that are distinguished from those of other nearby areas due to their personality and unique style.
La Jaraba is located on the historical site of the same name, between the municipalities of Villarrobledo and El Provencio, in the heart of La Mancha.
Very few estates, countryseats or determined areas can boast of having such a rich history as La Jaraba, Palaeolithic settlements have been found on the shore of the Valdelobos River that crosses the estate. This proves that La Jaraba was already a place with excellent conditions for agriculture and livestock, which allowed stable settlements throughout history: Iberians, Romans (possible introduction of vines in the area), Visigoths and later on Arabs; the latter gave it its current name, to be then recovered by the Kingdom of Castile. Jaraba is an Arab term that means “abundant water or drink”.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, the estate became the property of another owner, who revolutionised the production system of the estate, and specifically recovered and improved the vines, olives and livestock for La Jaraba, building a winery, cheese factory and olive oil press on the same estate in order to transform it into a comprehensive agro-food exploitation, with the clear objective of increasing the quality of the products for which the estate or Pago de La Jaraba was recognised. We are so proud of our products that all of them, Wine, Artisan Manchego Cheese, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil are commercialized exclusively under our own brands: Pago de La Jaraba, La Jaraba, Viña Jaraba and Azagador.
