Our premiuim product is a high phenolic extra virgin olive (EVOO) of early harvest. When the fruit (i.e. the olive) is still green and has its normal shape. The olive fruit is picked manually, in order to provide protection against micro – “injuries” which can significantly affect quality. Daily oiling, is another key factor that contributes to its superior quality. Thus, we produce a polyphenolic, notably low acidity olive oil (<0.3%), which holds the characterization of therapeutic (Health Claim E.U. 432/2012), preventing various diseases such as osteoarthritis, many types of cancer, increased cholesterol levels etc.
This particular olive oil, of Koroneiki unique variety (100%), is collected on the eastern slopes of Mount “Vrachiona”, which remain sunny throughout the day, at 220 m altitude in the area of Agia Marina, Zakynthos. Its color is intensely bright green due to the fact that unripe olives have a high content of chlorophyll. The taste is fruity and intensely bitter with an orange aroma (something that characterizes many Zakynthian olive oils due to the simultaneous flowering of oranges).
