Terraced Territory

The production of good quality olive oil has had a bit of a renaissance lately, in Mallorca.

One of the centres of olive oil pressing is the village of Caimari, just north of Inca. The olive trees are cultivated on the slopes of the Tramuntana mountains where man-made terraces have been built, allegedly by the Romans. Harvest time is in September and October. The olive pressing and the production of Virgin Olive Oil happens during the months of October through January.

You will soon be able to buy the freshly pressed olive oil of the 2007 harvest.

The photo was taken between Inca and Lluc, near Selva and Caimari, Mallorca, Spain. The date: February 9th, 2008. The time was 13:23:39.
