Our olive oil
The organic, extra virgin, early harvest olive oil Prestige Ultra Premium EVOO comes from olives of the Koroneiki variety, grown in our olive groves in Achaia. The olives are harvested in mid October, when they are still green and unripe. They are processed in our privately-owned olive mill, on the day they are harvested using cold pressing. In this way quality, nutrients and the rich aromatic profile of our olive oil is guaranteed.
Polyphenols & Benefits to health
In accordance with European Regulation 432/2012 (L 136/25/05/2012), olive oil may bear the indication “Health Claim”, if it has a high content of polyphenols, i.e. at least 250mg of polyphenols per 1 Kg of olive oil. Phenols like oleocanthal and oleacein, found only in olive oil, have significant biological activity and have been associated with anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant action, as well as with protective action for the heart and nervous system.
It has been proven that the daily consumption of 20g Olive oil with Health Claim provides at least 5mg of hydroxytyrosol and derivatives, helping protect blood lipids from oxidation stress.
Aromatic Profile & Food Pairing
A fully balanced olive oil of the Koroneiki variety. On the nose, “green” aromas of freshly cut grass, olive leaves and banana. A lovely harmony of the fruity, the bitter and the spicy. In the mouth, predominant notes of tomato leaves, almonds and green pepper, adding a pleasant freshness.
The early harvest Prestige Ultra Premium EVOO is best consumed raw, sprinkled on literally any dish.
It makes exquisite pairings with: Bruschetta, citrus fruits, yoghurt, bitter greens, Madagascar vanilla ice cream, legumes, green salads, spicy tomato recipes and BBQ beef. It is also ideal for cooking, frying or sautéing.
