Gourmet unrefined extra virgin organic olive oil comes from olives organically farmed in Greece, grown in a small coastal paradise known as Pylos, near Kalamata, on the tip of the Peloponnese Peninsula.
Our oil is pressed entirely from Koroneiki olives, a varietal that has grown in Greece for 3000 years. Difficult to cultivate and grown only for oil, Koroneiki trees produce tiny fruit. A single olive type, grown by a single producer, is hand harvested using old world methods to prevent damage. They are picked just as the olives begin to change color, the point when the anti-oxidant levels are at their peak. The fruit is then cold-pressed using new world technologies within 24 hours to obtain oil of the highest possible quality. Due to its high anti-oxidant level, this is very stable oil, with a shelf life of two years. It takes over ten pounds of these olives to make one liter of oil.
