Organic Cretan Olive Oil
Olive Oil from Organic Farming: from Crete.
Cretan olive oil is popular all over the world because it is mostly of very high quality. This is also proven by our olive oil from the Orthodox Monastery of Agia Triada. The Koroneiki olives thrive in the privileged climate, with 3,000 hours of sunshine yearly, and yield an excellent fruity, mild olive oil, which is classified as "extra virgin olive oil" and certified organic. The acid content is only between 0.1 and 0.8%.
Olive Oil. The Green Gold.
Since time immemorial olive oil has been known for its riches in flavours depending on the olive variety, the soil and climate of the cultivation area and the harvest time. Even the age of the tree varies the taste, colour and character of the oil. But with the boom of this "green gold," something happened which usually happens when a finite raw material becomes an infinite one overnight – it has been tampered with and manipulated.
Those who are interested in really good olive oil insist on oil from mills using traditional methods, from oil millers whose capacity may be small, but who make up for it with the great ethos of their craft. Some of them even produce under the label of protected and controlled indications of origin – DOP (Denominazione di Origine Protetta) in Italy, AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) in France. The olives used for these oils must originate from the geographical area in question, and the oil must be obtained in a traditional way in the same region, all the while adhering to clearly defined quality standards. The result: oil of the highest quality, a high degree of differentiation, balanced flavours while at the same time low yields leading to smaller quantities. From a variety of exquisite oils, we have selected those whose taste characteristics beautifully reflect their origin.
