About Organic Extra Virgin Kalamata Olive Oil
These olives are hand harvested just before ripening as they turn from golden green to light purple. Specialised pruning of the olive trees, correct pressing, the best storage and careful filling are crucial for creating the unique flavour and aroma of the oil. Their production site in Greece uses Koronekïki olive trees which yield only 1-3 litres per tree, while elsewhere an olive tree may be grown to yield 10 litres. They recognise that the quality of the oil and the taste that's delivered are more important than the quantity produced.
