“De Bellota” / Acorn

Many of the flavours and aromas we get in our products come from the acorn (bellota). It brings a very special texture in mouth.

 

Acorn (bellota) is the fruit of the holm oaks, centenary trees that make the “dehesas” (meadows) where our geese grow in total freedom. This fruit is only available from October to January, and when is ripe it falls on the ground. This is the “montanera” natural fattening period of our geese. They eat lots of acorn whole walking and flying plenty of kilometres to get that acorn fruit.

 

These are the same acorn rich in oleic acid that feed the Iberian pig and generate its fat infiltration.

 

Acorn is a highly caloric food that generates natural fat infiltration in the meat and liver of our geese. Many of the flavours and aromas we get in our products come from the acorn (bellota). It brings a very special texture in mouth.

 

Our geese meat is different because its shiny red colour and its fine marbling (intra-muscle fat infiltration). It is a meat that resembles the hunting one, able to evoke the link to the earth, the passion and careful love on its preparation.
