1.Origin
Señoríos de Relleu is the outcome of Eliseo Quintanilla Almagro’s curiosity, experience and origin. Born into a farming family in rural Cartagena, he decided early on in life to work in the world of pharmaceuticals, studying plants in search of purely natural means of making people feel better. More than 15 years ago this led him to research the beneficial health properties of oleuropein, found in olive leaves. This was the start of a close bond with olive trees, a love he has wholeheartedly instilled into his youngest son Hugo since childhood. 
2.Location and terrain
The Masia Teuladi farmhouse, built in 1918, is only 10 km from the sea and nestles in a valley of almond groves and Aleppo pines, where gentle Mediterranean breezes take the edge off the often harsh mountain weather. Here, among the terraces, is where Eliseo and Hugo set up Señoríos de Relleu. The chalky clay loam soil found in this area makes this the perfect spot for growing native varieties such as Manzanilla Villalonga, Blanqueta, Changlot Real, Alfafara and Genovesa alongside the highly prized Arbequina variety. 
3.Pioneers in conveying emotions with all 5 senses
Passionate people, places and projects infect everyone around them with their enthusiasm. We want to share that passion with you, so this naïve-art style aluminium bottle designed by Paula Alenda shows the people who founded Señoríos de Relleu, the mountains, the Mediterranean, the Finca Teuladi estate (“teuladi” means sparrow in Valencian), the oil press, awards obtained at Terraolivo (Israel) and in Los Angeles (USA), and of course the olive trees and their fruit, whose delicious juice it contains. 
4.Our Coupages
Native varieties have their very own style, which typically features an excellent aroma, a fresh fruity flavour of freshly cut grass, combined with balance, stability and complete harmony, allowing complex pairings to be made. To fully preserve the first-class nutritional and sensory properties of EVOO (Extra Virgein Olive Oil), we decided to produce an innovative unbreakable, lightweight, hardwearing, recyclable and easy to use aluminium bottle that protects its contents from direct light. The Señorios de Relleu Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the result of a careful selection of the varieties that compose it. It is a “Coupage” or “Assembly” that comprises the Manzanilla Villalonga, Arbequina, Blanqueta, Changlot Real, Alfafara and Genovesa varieties and that make up an olive oil with a great personality, with distinguishing aromas and hints. “Extra Virgin Olive Oil”, very balanced, fruity and aromatic, with great complexity and personality, with hints of green banana, tomato, green almonds, fresh grass, fennel and aromatic herbs (these being especially pronounced). Production is limited to the harvest itself. We have 4differentCoupages:
