The Marqués de Griñón presented his book dedicated to olive oil stressing the need to upgrade a natural product, excellent health, and with exceptional quality nationwide.

Among olive groves and vineyardsJust wanted to present Carlos Falco, Marqués de Griñón, his latest literary work, 'Oleum.

The culture of olive oil. In his estate Casa de Vacas, in the municipality of Malpica de Tajo, surrounded by what has earned him much respect in the world of wine, for just ten years as a producer of extra virgin olive oil, Falcó spoke of a work fraught with time, more than eight years, and dedication, that comes with experience, and born with vindictive spirit.

 The intention is clear, put in place that deserves the 'liquid gold' in both the culinary and in health, without losing sight of the importance of quality and warranty of a product which, on occasion, substitutes harmed by forward sales and massive productions that undermine its natural. The work begins with a detailed description of the origin of olive oil, in the Syrian city of Ebla in the third century. C., as the first production enclave consists of this element, and continues with a historical tour of the Mediterranean, stopping in Crete and the palace of Knossos, entirely devoted to art oleic, and expansion of olive hand of the Phoenicians. "The oil has been instrumental in the development of peoples, as material for lamps illuminate as diet center, as a cosmetic to medicinal products and lubricants for trucks. It was the oil of antiquity", Marquis explains. Curiosity Special oil use rises as an object of worship, developed in a chapter of the book, where Greek and Roman mythology shake hands with the Jewish and Christian Scriptures under the name "The oil of Yahweh". Syria, Greece, Carthage and finally Spain the largest producer of extra virgin olive oil in the world

Not surprisingly, says Falco, 80 percent of global production takes place in the European Mediterranean, and from there, 40 percent have national denomination. "We are the dominant power, although commercial", regrets. And, in that plane and protest, the Marqués de Griñón notes that the consumer and domestic producer has ceased to believe in this product as a real source of health and quality, relegating it to the background, draining their quality by increased production and living bitter episodes fraudulent oils using a name for offering products that have nothing to do with extra virgin.

Falcó says in the conclusion of his book to be proposed oil "supported by a technological revolution, qualitative, dietetics and communications to increase its appeal, definitely stop back your current status with little credibility commodity trade and occupy the role it deserves in a new culture that emphasizes its status as a star Mediterranean diet". In this aim, Falco has the support of his daughter, Xandra, CEO and alma mater of oleic international project, and a raw material, embodied in its products, technology and history notes that come together to achieve an oil of excellent quality and with its antioxidant properties intact. Because, as concluded by the Marquis, the oil is "a treasure" to be fostered.
