Empordàlia’s Oli de Pau is an extra virgin olive oil made exclusively from olives from centuries-old trees of the Empordà. These trees are of two varieties that are only found here, Argudell and Corivell, and along with the characteristic climatic feature of the Empordà, the tramuntana wind, they give the fruit a special character.
