In the centre of the Iberian Peninsula there is a low altitude mountain range known as Los Montes de Toledo. This area is of great ecological value, comprising the Cabañeros nature reserve where many endangered species coexist, such as the lynx and the golden eagle, together with wild boar, deer and roe deer.
Traditionally, the olive oils produced here have been highly regarded by olive oil connoisseurs for their extraordinary quality, which since long ago has been termed colloquially as Tipo Toledo (Toledo Type). This high quality is due to the presence of exceptionally favourable conditions for olive tree cultivation in both climate and soil, in addition to the use of the Cornicabra olive variety. Cornicabra is native to this region and is fruit of the slow selection process conducted by settlers of the area throughout time: from the first Phoenicians until today, including the Roman and Arab civilizations. This process has resulted in Cornicabra’s excelling adaptation to the environment.
