42 INTERNATIONAL AWARD WINNING OLIVE OIL | PDO MESSARA VALLEY | CRETE, GREECE | MONOCULTIVAR KORONEIKI OLIVE
Ellora Farms Messara PDO or “Protective Designation of Origin” Olive Oil is of the highest Quality and meets stringent requirements while maintaining a focus on environmental consciousness and tradition. This Olive oil is produced at source in the Messara Region of Southern Crete.
It is here in the Island of Crete, in the municipality of Vouves, that the world’s oldest living olive tree of Vouves, estimated to be more than 3000 years old and still producing the prized olives, marks the history and emphasizes the importance of the olive oil for local farmers. With each passing year, perfect climate and soil conditions, in the Island of Crete, allow the olive trees to bear precious olive fruit.
The olive fruit is harvested and sent directly to state of the art milling and processing facilities for immediate cold pressing and bottling. Low temperatures are applied to preserve the traditional flavor and quality of the olive oil.
The olive oil has a peppery flavor and the fruitiness of a true Cretan Extra Virgin Olive Oil of which the origin and authenticity is certified by the EU standards. Ellora Farms PDO Kolymvari Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a plush, fruity bouquet and a singular peppery soupcon. Acidity and other inimical qualities are at near zero values due to special cultivation, selection, and extraction processes. This product is acclaimed worldwide as top quality olive oil.
Taste the difference and trace the history of single origin, single region, and ethically produced olive oil.
