L’estornell Quincetenary Olive Oil
Olive trees can live for over a thousand years, and all over Spain there are trees of many varieties which were living and bearing fruit when Christopher Columbus set sail for America in 1492.
Avelino Veá, renowned Patron of the House of VEÁ and producer of L’Estornell and Lérida Veá olive oils, has searched for 500 year old trees to produce this superb extra-virgin oil. The age of the trees is authenticated by reference to local records and family-archives.
Avelino Veá is therefore offering a limited edition product which will be presented in hand-crafted glass ‘taberna’ decanters, of the kind used throughout Spain during Columbus’ lifetime. Each decanter comes complete with a glass stopper.
Every case, and every decanter, will be numbered. Each case contains six decanters, packed in individual gift boxes produced in Spain using Galician pine – a magnificent and unusual presentation fully worthy to celebrate the historic voyage of Christopher Columbus from Spain to America 500 years ago.
