Señoríos de Relleu Delicate Coupage Light
When we talk about the healthiest edible oil with great chemical profile, pleasant flavor and aroma and long shelf life, then the name of olive oil comes up. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the gift of mother nature. People have been using it since prehistorical times for multiple purposes. This oil has the highest number of antioxidants and mono-unsaturated fatty acids in comparison to other edible oils on earth.
Scientific research has revealed that mono-unsaturated fatty acids and high density lipoproteins are unprecedently good for body’s metabolic activities and cholesterol level. These fatty acids are helpful in fighting against many diseases, especially CVD. Extra virgin olive oil is also rich in fat soluble vitamin K and E which are anti-oxidant in nature, thus protecting the oil and human body from abnormal activities.
In order to enjoy these benefits of the oil, it is mandatory that the oil you consume is pure and from a verified source. The source/ company from where you are buying the oil matters a lot, because it is the quality for which you are paying off. In this niche, I would like to introduce Señoríos de Relleu.

The entire process of sowing olives, harvesting the fruit, processing them, grinding and oil extraction, storing and bottling, thus each and every step is handled with great care after doing deep research.

Olive Oil Señoríos de Relleu
Señoríos de Relleu, an olive oil producing company, is the outcome of curiosity, experience and origion of Eliseo Quintanilla Almagro. He was born into a farming family in rural area of Cartagena. He studied pharmaceuticals and plants, a field of nature to bring innovative, positive changes in the lives of the people. Owing to his passion and research work he found amazing health properties of oleuropein, a component found in olive leaves. This was just only the beginning of his enthusiastic bond with olive groves. He instilled and transferred this passion to his youngest son Hugo.
The Mediterranean sea is the birth place of our civilization, tradition and culture. It has always been an inspiration for the development of art, gastronomy and values among all the olive oil producers. Señoríos de Relleu have always absorbed the influence of the Mediterranean since the first day of its establishment. The everyday work of our team reflects our high spirit and the influence we get from our surroundings.
A Living Story
The founder of Señoríos de Relleu, is a botanist-pharmacist by profession. In 1969, he started his search for medicinal properties in plants, specifically in olive trees. Eliseo Quintanilla Almagro and his wife Magdalena Ripoll Ruiz built this company on the solid grounds of passion and emotions. We are an innovative and experienced family business where high quality extra virgin olive oil is produced.
We are located in the middle of a valley surrounded by high range mountains, 10km away from the Mediterranean coast near the Sierra de Aitana. These special surroundings provide us positive microclimatic features; the temperature remains constant throughout the year at an average of 15.8 ºC, almost 3000 hours of sun per year, 400 mm annual precipitation, and a height of 429 m above the sea level. All these conditions make our place perfectly suitable for the optimum growth of various olive varieties.
Our farms have olive groves that are native to these lands and coexist with the traditional cultivation practices in the area. Extensive mountain fields where almond trees, carob trees, Aleppo pines, rosemary, mastic trees, heather, thyme and esparto make this region a charming, beautiful and healthy landscape for our olive groves.
The soil has a chalky clay texture which makes this land a perfect spot for the growth of native olive trees.
The variety of the olive defines its personality and attributes that collectively contributes to the profile of the end product; olive oil. These olive oil varieties allows us to create an infinite, evocative and fine possible blends of pleasing aromas and flavors for our palate. The olive varieties harvested on our land from which we produce extra virgin olive oil are as follows:

These varieties have their own characteristic style, excellent fruity flavor in addition to stability, balanced consistency and total harmony that makes the creation of complex blends possible. Some of these varieties are indigenous of the Alicante Mountains, which makes our oil distinctive and unique.
Olive Oil Processing
We harvest our olives with great care throughout the year in Señoríos de Relleu. After harvesting, olives are grinded within a few hours in the same estate. This immediate fruit processing helps us to obtain high and fresh quality product.
Early harvesting in the middle of October has been always our first priority. This collection allows us to produce liquid gold with maximum intensity. Moreover, early harvest also provides us with higher quality, aroma and better flavor in comparison to late seasonal harvesting.
The collection is pre-planned and conditions are carefully analyzed. Then the collection is carried out by vibrating the branches. The ground where olive trees are grown is rugged so the mechanization process is not possible to carry out. Laborious task is carried out to minimize the fruit damage and loss. We do not pick up the fallen bruised fruit, because if they are added to the healthy badge, it can deteriorate the overall organoleptic attributes of the products.
Oil mill is located at the base of the farm which reduces the time between harvesting and grinding. In the grinder, cold pressing and centrifugation system is installed to avoid any chemical changes in the olive oil due to high temperature. Only physical means like grinding, beating and separation are used for oil extraction from the fruit paste without using chemical agents.
Subsequently, the surplus fruit paste which is left behind, is used to make compost to fertilize our farms and add nutrients back to the soil.
Once the olive oil is obtained, it is stored in stainless steel containers under inert atmosphere, nitrogen gas to prevent deterioration. These conditions also preserve the flavor, aroma and composition of the product and increases their shelf life.
Bottling and Packaging
Bottling is carried out in small lots according to the customer orders, this makes the extra virgin olive oil of Estate Señoríos de Relleu distinctive and perpetuating with fruity flavor and aroma. It keeps the quality maximum over time.
Our main aim is to share our history and olive oil together with art. So our packaging transmits an essence of fun and purity through naïf artistic designs created by Paula Alenda from Alicante. We use innovative material aluminium for packaging in the world of olive oil because it gives complete protection from the direct light and is unbreakable, recyclable, hardwearing and easy to ship and use. The bottles are dark which protects the product from oxidation. Metal seal with pourer enables correct dosage and oil preservation.
