Fine Oils and Ingredients Ltd has been established to market products produced in Chile.
We are proud to be associated with two family businesses.
Galan Vineyards who have appointed us exclusive distributors in Europe and Olisur Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) their exclusive distributor in the UK
Olisur’s owner and Chairman, Mr Alfonso Swett’s, goal was to produce an excellent extra virgin olive oil, fresh, new, high quality and that tasted good.
The Olisur team developed a process that allows them to produce consistently fresh EVOO by picking the olives and pressing them within two hours. New milling technology was introduced where olives are machine harvested when the fruit is at its peak. The grinding process takes place in stainless steel mills, the paste is then stirred slowly and high speed centrifuges separate the oil from the water. This process produces an EVOO that is fresh, complex and every bit as varied as wine varieties.
The olive groves, situated around the Colchagua Valley, have in excess of 2 million trees with plans to expand this to 3 million trees. Each olive tree is fed water by tubes, 3000 miles of them, coming from their own, man-made lake, the state of the art production building is sighted at the centre of the plantation.
Olisur is now the largest producer of high quality EVOO in Chile and believed to be one of the largest in the world from a single estate.
What is so special about their extra virgin olive oil? Great Taste, Traceability, Low Acidity, First Cold Extraction and Sustainable Practices
The Galan Vineyard has been producing excellent quality wines for the last one hundred years.
With more than 320 hectares (ha) located in four different valleys (Colchagua, Cachapoal, Cauquenes and Molina), where Cabernet Sauvignon is predominant in 120ha of them, and Chardonnay in another 80ha, Galan Winery uses its mild climate which on average has 450mm of rain per year and temperatures of over 30°C (86°F) during summer time, to produce balanced and fruity wines.
In whites, it seeks a mild to high structure, with plenty of aromatic intensity which is a direct result of a strong temperature difference during the day and night in Lontue Valley, establishing aromas and bringing out tipicity. Their red wines have accomplished very concentrated aromas, together with colour intensity, character and complexity.
All wines are estate bottled in Chile.
