Olive Tree is our Life!
We are very proud of our family heritage. We recall memories from our childhood. As each time comes up as if our Grandparents are walking with us, hand in hand! We want you to experience this too in our products!
Each November a ritual that comes from the ancient times, and is revived here in our olive groves.
The Olive Crop Process:
We use our hands mostly, blessed by nature in the harvesting of the fruit from the trees. Then we let them "sleep" in our warehouse in big tanks with water and salt. As time passes by - after 6 months at least - they start losing their intense bitterness and acquire a sweet soft amazing taste. (Like a fine wine they have to mature into sweetness).
We monitor the level of sweetness or bitterness and extract them from the tanks at the right time. Then they are placed in glass vases with the extra virgin olive oil from our groves and carefully sealed.
When you desire to have it to your table, it's time to put them in their "own" jar, ready for their trip.
They are ready to consume when they arrive in your home.
We believe that you may find yourselves holding an empty jar after few minutes, asking for more.
But if you belong to those, who can retain their passion for the ultimate taste pleasure, you can keep the jar in a cabinet of your kitchen. These delicious black olives from Greece in extra virgin olive oil - can last for many months. Just remember to top them up, with olive oil as there must always be an olive oil "film" on top of the olives. This will form a natural protection to keep the black olives fresh. The left over extra virgin olive oil is very useful for salads, or cooking. It is a standalone product too!
