Monterosa Varieties

The Monterosa Premium range consists of five Premium olive oils full of flavor and aroma. Four of these are single-estate oils – Verdeal, Picual, Cobrançosa and Maçanilha, our regional olive variety; the fifth, named Selection, is a blend of our varieties. Besides these, we also produce Monterosa Horta do Félix olive oil, another blend of our varieties but more suitable for culinary use.

Produzimos cinco azeites Premium, quatro deles monovarietais, Verdeal, Maçanilha, Picual, Cobrançosa e um Selection que é produzido com uma mistura de excelência de variedades devidamente selecionadas pelo painel de provadores internos da equipa Monterosa. Produzimos ainda um azeite virgem extra designado por “Horta do Félix” que combina uma selecção das nossas variedades.

In a 15ha area in Moncarapacho, in the eastern Algarve, we produce olives that lead to Monterosa Extra Virgin olive oils, showcasing the oleic potential of our region. Step by step, we maintain quality by focusing on good practices in the grove and the mill. Harvesting at the ideal ripeness and reducing the waiting time between picking and extraction are some practices that help us achieve our goal. At Horta do Félix, we handpick the olives while they are still green. This moment makes all the difference as it brings more intensity and freshness felt in every drop of our oil. After harvesting and selecting, the olives are immediately transported to the mill, where the oil is extracted, filtered, stored, and later bottled. Throughout the production process, we focus on circularity, transforming waste into new resources: we grind the pruning wood in the interlines of the grove and return to the soil, in the form of compost, the residues obtained from the oil extraction.

The essence of purity on your palate.

It all began in 1969 with Detlev von Rosen who came from Sweden to Portugal, to produce vegetables during the winter months for the Northern European markets, where they were only available in the summer. The mild climate of the Algarve was ideal for this. It was a success, but due to difficulties in transporting the product to London, Hamburg, and Gothenburg, he switched production to ornamental plants in 1972. This was an emerging market, and the products could endure longer transportation times. The activity flourished over the years, becoming one of the most important ornamental plant nurseries in Europe.

The olive grove came later, replacing an orange grove as a result of several years of drought. The olive tree, which requires little water, has been present in the Algarve for thousands of years, although the tradition of making olive oil in the region was almost lost in modern times. In the year 2000, the Monterosa company took on the challenge of producing high-quality estate olive oil in the Algarve.
