Handpicked at early harvest when the fruit on the olive tree begins to take its green colour and pressed, following cold extraction procedure, with utmost care, Lesvos Gold® is a Premium Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil which comes in limited quantity in numbered bottles.
Although the production is lower during the early harvest, the olives impart a more fruity and pungent note to the olive juice while, at the same time, contributing to our health by containing a higher percentage of polyphenols and antioxidants than other extra virgin olive oils.
After harvest, olives are stored in crates under constantly controlled hygienic conditions. Within 24 hours, they are cold-pressed always ensuring that the temperature of 30°C is never exceeded, using a centrifugal process, in order to maintain all their beneficial substances intact. This way, an olive juice, with unique aromas and taste is being produced.
In the meantime, the exceptional organoleptic and chemical properties of Lesvos Gold® are guaranteed by the numerous quality tests performed.
Before being bottled, Lesvos Gold® premium extra virgin olive oil is stored in stainless steel tanks, for a short period of time, which allows for a natural sedimentation under ideal conditions – no air exposure, 10-15°C temperature.
During bottling procedure, all packaging is chosen in order to protect the olive oil from UV rays, sustaining this way its optimal characteristics.
Committed to perfection, our team of professionals brings all its passion, effort and devotion in every stage of Lesvos Gold® production. This is, after all, evident to the final product.
