The Agua Amarilla Estate (Los Vilos, Región de Coquimbo, Chile) has belonged to our family for over 60 years. Encompassing from the coast to the mountains, its native vegetation is considered one of Chile’s most biodiverse. Our goal is to care of and preserve its over 42.000 acres of land, harmoniously combining olive growing with the conservation of its natural flora and fauna.
In its origins, our farm was dedicated to Australian Merino sheep breeding, having had at its peak over 10.000 sheep. All of its high quality wool was exported to England. With the emergence of synthetic fibers, at the beginning of this century we began to seek new endeavors that would continue to sustain the farm.
In 2001, we decided to plant the first olive trees, keeping around 3.000 sheep as a complementary livestock activity to the olive growing.
Our olive tree plantation, which today amounts up to 120 acres, was always compassed towards a higher end, which is to preserve the native forests and natural crevices of the region. From their beginning, our olive trees have been organic. During the shearing season in October, our sheep are integrated with our agriculture, feeding from the grass that surrounds the trees and fertilizing the land.
Today we have four varieties of olive trees: Arbequina, Koroneiki, Frantoio y Picual.
A premium, extra virgen and 100% organic olive oil, Olivos de Casuto is made from Arbequina, Frantoio and Koroneiki olives, harvested at the early season. The final result is a fresh, green and intense olive oil, with a harmonic, balanced and elegant touch.
