Protected Designation of Origin Siurana only certifies the best extra virgin olive oils from the territory
A designation of origin protects the name of a product originating in a specific geographical area. Its quality and characteristics are essentially or exclusively due to the geographical environment, meaning natural and human factors, in which production, transformation and elaboration take place.
The DOP Siurana is the second oldest designation of origin for virgin olive oils in the State. It was created at the end of the 70s by a group of enterprising people in the olive sector, who believed in the need to protect and spread the singularities of an excellent oil, extracted from the Arbequina olive variety. Since 1979, the CR has overseen product quality and the promotion of the DOP Siurana seal
Our oil owes its name to the Siurana River, a tributary of the Ebre River that originates in the Priorat region and flows through 3 of the 7 regions of our territory: Priorat, Tarragonès, Ribera d'Ebre, Alt and the Baix Camp, the Conca de Barberà and the Baix Penedès.
