Denomination of origin | The beginning of the project

 

DENOMINATION OF ORIGIN

The Denomination of Origin Poniente de Granada is the result of the recognition by the Spanish and European Administration of the superior quality of the extra virgin olive oil produced in the Poniente de Granada district. Its unique differentiating characteristics are due to the local terrain and the olive groves which produce the olives, the systems for producing the virgin olive oil, and the influence of the human factor in all of these.

DATE OF RECOGNITION

The comarca or district was recognised as a denomination of origin in October 2003, thanks to the efforts of the Association of virgin olive oil producers and processers of Poniente de Granada.

OBJECTIVES

The name Poniente de Granada represents the efforts and the pride of the olive-growers in this Granada district in promoting, protecting and ensuring the quality of the extra virgin olive oil they produce through the title of the Protected Denomination of Origin.
