Since 1950 Ondoliva has gained a well-deserved reputation, offering an outstanding Olive Oil perfectly described by the local farmers with the use of the word “Ondo” which means “Good”.
Back in the day, olives were picked by hand, olive by olive, men and women standing shoulder to shoulder throughout the district in the traditional olive harvest. Once collected, olives were taken to the presses where they were ground in grass baskets creating pressure to obtain the precious oil. The oil was kept in clay jars and later bottled and taken round the houses.
70 years later, Urzante remains true to our original values that have helped us to reach this point: Keeping the spirit of tradition and respect for the land and the environment.
The Dam Estate
Located in the North of Spain, nestled in the green Ebro River Valley, Navarra has enjoyed a long history of olive oil, dating from the days of the Romans.
The “Finca la Estanca” estate is located close to a National Park in a fertile land where a dam was built by the Romans over 2000 years ago. It is still preserved and gives it its name, “Finca La Estanca” or “The Dam Estate”. Here is where the Marin Family founded Urzante in 1950.
Today “Finca la Estanca” covers a surface of 1,200 hectares with a production capacity of Extra Virgin Olive Oil attaining 2,240,000 litres. The olive varieties grown, all distinguished by its mild and fruity flavour among other properties, include Koroneiki (Greek), Arbequina (Spanish), Arbosana (Spanish) and Arróniz (Spanish).
