Our commitment to the land

is part of our DNA

We are farmers and harvesters, so we feel the need to take care of our trees and the ecosystem in which they are nestled.

At Castillo de Canena we take care of the natural cycle of the tree, combining traditional wisdom with the most advanced technology and scrupulous respect for the environment. All the olive trees are fully mechanised, have a drip fertigation system installed and are certified as “Integrated Production” (A.P.I.), which guarantees respectful practices towards the natural environment and a rational cultivation system.
