Are olive oils from different places of origin mixed together?
The BIO PLANÈTE Classic category includes one mild, one medium-fruity and one fruity olive oil. For reasons of taste, we sometimes create these oils as so-called "olive oil cuvées": In individual cases, batches are mixed together carefully and based on strict criteria in order to obtain an optimal taste. This means that we can reliably ensure that the bottle will actually contain a mild, medium-fruity or fruity olive oil at all times.
As with wine, olive oils from the same growing region can be very different year on year – depending on the climate or harvest time. So they can also taste very different each year. If you choose one of the country-specific olive oils with a protected designation of origin from our gourmet category, you can be sure that only olives from the respective country or growing region are used. Our olive oil "Fraîcheur" is also an authentic olive oil made from Arbequina olives.
