Venta del Barón
Mueloliva’s Venta del Barón is ranked No. 1 in World’s Best Olive Oils for three consecutive years in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
This Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is a limited production edition as the producer only picks the best olives (75% Hojiblanca & 25% Picudo) to produce this premium quality EVOO each year.
World’s Best Olive Oils is a non-profit organisation with the objective to build the ranking of the world’s best extra virgin olive oils from the results of the major international competitions for the current harvest.
Since 1998, Venta del Barón has received more than 60 awards from 8 different countries, which include “Spain’s Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil” from the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, and “Best Oil in the World” accorded by the International Olive Council.
Venta del Barón is used in luxury hotels such as the Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts, as well as in restaurants like Alain Ducasse in New York, USA. It is also a highly regarded EVOO in the Italian market, recognised for its exceptional quality.
Certified by the Denominación de Origen Protegida Priego de Córdoba, Andalucía, Spain, the acidity level of Venta del Barón is normally less than 0.1% under good harvest.
Varietal & Region
Venta del Barón is produced from two olive varieties: Hojiblanca and Picudo, farmed and milled in Andalucia, Córdoba, Spain.
During the milling process, Mueloliva does not use any water or heat to extract the olive oil from the olives. This preserves all of the health-promoting attributes of the olive oil, and hence its EVOO has a high concentration of tocopherols (commonly called Vitamin E in a generic sense), phytosterols and phenols, all important nutritional components that are extremely good for our health.
The free fatty acidity is a direct measure of the quality of the oil, and reflects the care taken right from blossoming and fruit set to the eventual sale and consumption of the oil.
The International Olive Oil Council stipulated requirement for the acidity level of Extra Virgin Olive Oil is less than 0.8%.
This EVOO is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids (79%), which can have a beneficial effect on our heart when eaten in moderation.
It also has a good amount of anti-inflammatory agent and antioxidants, polyphenol and oleocanthal, which contribute to prevention of cardiovascular diseases, cancers, and osteoporosis. Clinical studies have also suggested that it may have a role in the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases and diabetes mellitus.
Venta del Barón is characterised by an intense green olive aroma, with notes of grass and almonds – very fresh. It has a lingering finish, with a nice balance of bitterness and spiciness.
We recommend you to use this Extra Virgin Olive Oil to finish your dishes, for breakfast especially with rustic bread, salads, a finishing touch on grilled vegetable, fish and seafood, and any other complex dishes.
Or even take two tablepoons every morning – it tastes so good as if you are drinking olive juice. Best of all, you consume all of its nutritious values.

It’s absolutely the best olive oil I have ever tasted. Flavour, texture and smell put me in heaven. The best over sliced fresh mozzarella cheese and tomatoes (caprese) and with hard, crusty bread. Totally blew me away. — Chuckykhan (verified purchase) on May 14, 2014, Amazon.com.

This is a very unique competition as the panel judges are all children aged 7 to 14 years, who were first being educated of the world of olive oil and later led by two global experts in extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), Rosa Chiquini and Raul Castellani in taste-testing the extra virgin olive oils submitted for competition judging – it adds a fresh view from the perspectives of children on what constitute best EVOO.
The children began to learn the tasting of olive oil for several months before they took part in the evaluation session.
