"We care for the land. We celebrate the grounds as a common place to all species."

the metaphor

The passage of times manifests itself majestically in Avantos.

 

With each sunrise, the size of our Olives expands silently, gloriously expressing the wisdom of the weather and the vitality of nature upon our trees.

 

Every day we feel blessed to witness the beauty of these living organisms that defied the urges of fate and the destructive capacity of the human hand.

 

Our olive trees have survived pests, earthquakes, world wars and entrepreneurial invasions. Today, in the shape of each olive, we feel the stability of the years and the slow movement of the earth.

 

The history of time is before our eyes.

Metáfora (Metaphor) is an olive oil with a millenarian blend, created from ancestral olive trees that preserves the timeless qualities of an olive oil where a living metaphor of a region is kept. An Olive Oil that extracts the pride, authenticity and wit of the people of Trás-os-Montes.

Sr. Fernando

Foi o Sr. Fernando, fiel cuidador das nossas oliveiras desde 1975, que começou a desenhar o A na perna do M no toro das nossas árvores. Hoje, ainda o continuamos a fazer da mesma forma, selando a lacre o nosso azeite com as iniciais MA que representam Mário Araújo, o nosso Avô.

Profundo conhecedor da magnificência das propriedades que caracterizam um bom azeite, o Sr. Fernando elabora cuidadosamente o Metáfora nas instalações da Prolagar em Mirandela. Harmonizando o respeito pela tradição com as mais recentes tendências de consumo, o Sr. Fernando consegue extrair um azeite que representa o orgulho, a autenticidade e a sagacidade do povo transmontano.
