Olive groves have been cultivated in the Queiles Valley of southern Navarre since Roman times. Here, today, Hacienda Queiles grows olive trees with greatest care to obtain a perfect fruit. The unique characteristics of its Arbequina olives are due to stony, limestone soils and a severe climate with very cold winters and hot summers.
Only a perfect fruit, harvested and selected carefully, can produce an Extra Virgin olive oil such as ABBAE DE QUEILES. In its own olive mill, of exquisite architecture, Hacienda Queiles uses state-of-the-art techniques and the combined expertise of its tasters and mill master to produce its output, bottled in numbered bottles, the true expression of a passion for the olive.
Hacienda Queiles is currently present in over 25 countries. They are numerous awards and recognitions received by Hacienda Queiles in contests to the quality of its olive oils and the most important guides in the world:
