THE OLIVE OIL MILL

THE OLIVE OIL MILL

The Oliveira da Serra Mill is located in Ferreira do Alentejo, integrated in the Marmelo olive grove. The Mill designed by the Portuguese architect Ricardo Bak Gordon, is a tribute to the Portuguese Olive Grove and represents the maximum exponent of technology at the service of olive oil quality and environmental sustainability. This fact led to the attribution of ISO 14.000 and ISO 22.000 certifications.

This is a modernity icon and one of the largest investments of the last 20 years in the Portuguese agriculture. The Mill generates several direct and indirect workstations, and supports the development of the small region producers as well.
In 2013, we opened a new mill in Avis, to respond to an increased production of our olive groves.

VISIT O LAGAR DO MARMELO

COME VISIT THE LARGEST OLIVE GROVE IN PORTUGAL AND ENJOY A GREAT DAY WITH YOUR FAMILY.

The visits are open to anyone, and are accompanied by a tour guide who will explain all the production stages of our olive oils. From the reception of the olive, to the intensive and super intensive olive grove systems, where you can have an idea of the extension of the olive grove. There is also a stop at the Dam of Marmelo, an infrastructure that is part of the Alqueva project. At the end of each tour, there is an olive oil tasting, where the goal is to identify the main differences among Oliveira da Serra olive oils.
