Aubocassa

The estate:

What really moved us when we arrived at the wonderful world of olive oil from the complex universe of wine was how an insignificant fruit can create, in its interior, all by itself, such a magnificent liquid, ready to be tasted. It is the only vegetable fat in the world that can be consumed without prior chemical processing.

 

We were surprised by the evolution of the oil inside the olive, as it changes its colour, its aromas and its flavours, from green, grassy, bitter and sharp to yellow, sweet and unctuous.

In this organoleptic pilgrimage there is a sublime moment, where a thousand fruits are concentrated at the same time to offer their scent, tomatoes, herbs, apples, bananas, kiwis, grapefruit, vegetables, …all coming together in an olive, paying tribute to the leading figure of the Mediterranean.

It seems that they seek to offer a single moment of glory, that they expect someone to rescue the oil from an unstoppable biological process, just at the right time, to offer it to the world as a new concept…

Fresh fruit juice at its best moment.
This, simply put, is what the Aubocassa oils are all about.
A fresh fruit juice at the time of seasoning. This, simply, is Aubocassa.
The property, since the twelfth century

Located on the eastern part of Majorca, Aubocassa is one of the few places where the flavour of the island’s agriculture has managed to last over time.

It is an ancient property, already mentioned in twelfth-century documents, where the passage of time has left a history of the different crops that have forged the Majorcan countryside. Wild olives are an unequivocal testimony of their olive-growing past. The winery tells us about its wine-growing splendour. The corrals and the leafy, cattle-napping fold are reminders of its livestock past. The old rainwater storage cisterns are indicators of Mediterranean farming philosophy, while the almond, fig and carob trees bear the agricultural stamp of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

 

The small church on the property has witnessed this evolution and presides, together with its two cypress trees, over the resurgence of olive groves and an undreamed-of oil.

 

The soils are limestone, formed by a puff pastry-like succession of horizontal layers packing fertile clays in between. The roots take advantage of the fissures to cut across the limestone shale and avidly explore the successive layers.
