Could it be the oldest oil ever?
Archaeological reports show that olive trees were cultivated as early as 3000 BC. However, surviving legends suggest that olives themselves were the focus of attention much earlier. Either way, historians agree on one thing: the first olive plantations were established in the Mediterranean region, where these blessed trees still thrive today. Much information relating to olive trees can also be found in ancient Greek literature, where olives are a symbol of wealth, abundance, power and peace.
Nowadays,there is absolutely no doubt about the beneficial effects of this legendary oil. Many of you associate it with healthy food or with the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, in which this miracle plays an irreplaceable role.
Origin and cultivation
** Manual collection and processing within 4 days **
One of the interesting things about olive trees is that they produce olives after twenty or more years of growth. In any case,the high nutritional value and delicious taste of olive oil are undoubtedly the main reasons why these oily fruits are worth waiting for. In addition, they can fruit for hundreds of years in fertile soils. The olive groves thus represent a valuable heritage that has survived for several generations.
Olives, the fruit of the olive tree, are harvested by hand, usually in the 5th to 7th month of their growth. In order for the resulting olive oil to be labelled ‚extra virgin‘,the olives must be gently processed within 4 days of harvesting.
Oil pressing is thus carried out only mechanically under low pressure and at low temperatures not exceeding 50 °C. No solvents or other chemicals are used during the pressing of this quality olive oil.
** Our olive oil comes from sun-drenched Greece. More specifically from picturesque Crete.**
