The Denomination of Origin Steppe, with the aim of making all its extra-covered virgin olive oils among the highest quality in the world, has a specification that contains much higher demands than the regulations international for an extra virgin olive oil. In this way, whenever we are before a D.O.Estepa oil we can be sure that its quality is beyond doubt.
