Olmais Premium Products
Now that you know a little more about our farm and our family history, below you can get to know a bit more about our products.
Olmais Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Tresval Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil
Olive oil is the reason Olmais exists. Every year we start harvest by sample picking olives from several parts over the olive grove, tasting them and deciding where and when harvest starts.
Using the least intrusive harvesting methods, our olives reach the mill six to eight hours after harvest where our olive oil is cold pressed and stored in small batches before we make the finals blends, all using the local Cobrancosa variety as a base.
Winer of over 40 awards, our Olmais Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a robust green profile full of herbaceous aromas, a bitter entry and a prolonged pugency that denounces the extremely high content of polyphenols, this is a gastronomic example of what a premium olive oil shoulde be.
The much awaited Tresval Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a lighter blend that although still retaining all the amazing green profile characteristics is less intense making it perfect for cooking amazing dishes.

Olmais Aged White Wine Vinegar
- from Organic Vinho Verde grapes
We usually say that fate itself willed this vinegar into existence, and this is why:
A few years ago we replanted vineyards in our family ancestral lands located in the Minho region of Portugal, all of them of the local Loureiro variety, we then certified them as organic and Vinho Verde vineyards and started what we thought was going to be wine.
During our very first wine making process we aerated the must so much and for so long we ended up creating vinegar, confronted with this result we decided take the next step and started ageing it in oak barrels.
And this is the full disclosure story of how we create our very own Olmais White Wine Aged vinegar perfect to magnify any chutney.
