About

At our home in the Northern region of Minho we have come to know and understand a food culture that is unique and richly set in tradition. Here local families produce their own olive oil and wines each year and the harvest celebrations are infectious.

It is here that we’ve grown to love Portugal, its climate, its food, its wine, its architecture and design and of course its stunning olive oils. It has led us on a journey to source the right producer with which to partner and develop a brand of olive oil.

Taste and Flavour

azouro PDO Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a sweetness to its taste with notes of almonds, a medium peppery bite and an elegant lasting finish. It has a balanced and harmonious flavour, with a fresh green fruity aroma and a precious golden green colour.

Our Oil

azouro is made by cold pressing the olives within hours of being picked and then bottled. This process must be carried out in the district where the olives are harvested in order to maintain the strict PDO certification criteria and respect cultural traditions.

Every season we create our unique blend from a selection of the finest indigenous olive varieties from this region — Verdeal, Madural & Cobrançosa.

The Warm Land

Trás-os-Montes and the Alto Douro is one of the best olive oil production areas in the world. It is where the ‘Terra Quente’ (The Warm Land) climate and schist soils produce very delicate and complex olive oils with a distinctly nutty aroma. These are extremely balanced olive oils with rather sweet, green, bitter and spicy tastes.

Trás-os-Montes is situated just above the River Douro in the north of the country, famous for Port Wines (and more recently fine table wines) and offers the right conditions for us to produce an exclusive and fascinating olive oil.

azouro

We believe that it is possible to create a top quality olive oil, design a beautiful brand around it and not charge the world for it. This is azouro.
