A good way to spice up your ideas about olive oils is to take a tasty journey through our country’s six regions of Protected Designation of Origin (Olive oils from Trás-os-Montes, Beira Interior, Ribatejo, Norte Alentejano, Moura and Alentejo Interior).
Another suggestion to discover new oleic territories, is to explore the aromas and flavours of different olives. The most common variety in Portugal is Galega, which predominates in the south and Beiras, and results in olive oils that are sweet and smooth, with green fruit flavours and almond notes. Cobrançosa Madural and Verdeal are found more in olive oils from Trás-os-Montes, producing olive oils that are intense and spicy. There are monovarietal olive oils (made with only one olive variety) and batch olive oils (blends of different varieties), although monovarietals are preferable to educate the palate of those who are venturing into the admirable world of olive oil.
Taste it, without preconceptions. This is the best advice for the truth, and the olive oil, to come out.
