A Capela Dos Olivais is an estate as rich in history as it is in land. After passing through heirs and periods of sharecropping, the land and estate came into the hands of Albert Baussan and his wife, Yolande, in 2000, essentially untouched. In restoring the estate and surrounding lands, they discovered one of the oldest olive oil mills in the region, practically ruined, which they then restored. Today, producers Rosaria and Cyril Pinho combined some of its original features with ultra modern milling techniques to create a method for extracting oil that is both technologically advanced and preserves the character and soul of the estate.

A Capela Dos Olivais (The Chapel of Olives) is a full service estate – with olives being grown, harvested and pressed, onsite. The resulting olive oil is a true gem - rich, opulent, and creamy, with an elegant finish - that is sure to impress!

Hand-picked olives, pressed within 24 hours.
