A complex and high-phenolic extra virgin olive oil. It is ideal to use as a finishing oil, poured over cold salads or added to cooked dishes at the last minute, so the intricacy of its flavors, its high fruitiness and medium taste intensity can be appreciated. Hand-harvested, cold-extracted and without pesticides.

The Aromas and Tastes
Much like fine wine, the following tastes and aromas naturally occur in our FAMILY RESERVE due to various factors, such as harvest date, olive grove micro-climate, location and variety. Absolutely nothing is added to this pure, extra virgin olive oil. We urge you to have a sip and see if you can identify these flavors!
The Health Benefits
Studies have shown that the antioxidants found in Extra Virgin Olive Oil may help prevent many diseases. In fact, the anti-inflammatory phenolic compound, oleocanthal, which is found in extra virgin olive oil, has the same properties as commercial pain-killers.
Around 75% of extra virgin olive oil is comprised of heart healthy Monounsaturated Fats (MUFAs). These are vital to support our nervous system, build immunity and power our brain! Evoo also contains vitamins, such as E and K, and helps protect “bad” LDL cholesterol from oxidation.
This variety of olive tree has been traditionally cultivated around the semi-mountainous areas of the Western Peloponnese for over ten centuries, the robust terrain helping to grow and shape this hearty species. The Koroneiki olives are known for their high quality and aromatic oil; their characteristic “green” taste is internationally renowned and perfectly complements most foods.
To produce our FAMILY RESERVE we harvest the olives early (November) when the fruits are still a yellowish/green in color. Although this gives a very low and costly yield of around 10% (meaning that 10kg of olives will produce 1kg of oil), it helps us achieve our desired very high antioxidant levels and delicious, medium intensity taste.
