      EL RIFER Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the fruit of our olive trees in Fogars de Montclús, in the foothills of the Montseny. The oil is extracted at the Roch de Sant Fruitós del Bages Mill, where the olives arrive in record time, having been collected by mechanical methods from the more than 25,000 trees which are harvested. The olives are harvested at the ideal point of ripeness, meaning that they give up their oil in its purest state, offering an unrivalled aroma and taste. The result is a unique oil, with a distinctly fruity scent free of practically any bitterness or sharpness.
      The distinctive location of our olive trees and the microclimate of the Montseny foothills give us exceptional harvests of our various varieties of olive, mostly arbequina, along with small quantities of marteña, picual and manzanilla.
