The history of Venta del Barón

Many stories have their beginnings in legends. Popular rumors that pass from generation to generation, until they reach our days. And this is the case of this Extra Virgin olive oil. The story tells that it receives its name from the Baron of Santaella. A nobleman who King Carlos III, dispossessed of his noble title, after taking the life of his wife in a fit of jealousy. 

Not only he, but his entire family was punished. They had to start a new life and opted to move to the Sierra de Priego, where they would dedicate themselves to the cultivation of olives to survive. 

It would be years later, when the same King Carlos III, would taste this liquid gold extracted from these olives of the sierra, with a sweet and fruity flavor. And overwhelmed by the excellent quality, he would reward the Baron, giving him back his title.
