Greek extra virgin olive oil, the excellence of a country

The extra virgin olive oil is one of the products that has been present in Greece for millennia, the first evidence of local olive oil production dates back to over 3,000 years. A combination of tradition, mythology and wealth of the earth render the extra virgin olive oil one of the reference products of the Greek cuisine on the international scene.

And it is no coincidence that the Mediterranean diet uses this product as one of the main ingredients, ideal for every dish. In fact, the Greeks have been using a very high quality extra virgin olive oil since the beginning.

Everywhere in the country, there are olive tree camps. Olive trees are able to grow almost spontaneously thanks to the dry and temperate Greek climate, ideal for their prosperity. What at first was simply a product for daily home cooking has gradually become an element that distinguishes Greece's excellence production abroad.


Peloponnese: where most of the production of Greek olive oil takes place

It is not difficult to find villages, especially in the Peloponnese, where people use the extra virgin olive oil even for frying ... and this highlights the quantity and the level of national production of this exquisite product.

Nowadays, however, there are more and more brands and commercial realities that decide to focus on quality productions with particular product presentations. In Greece, along with the island of Crete, the Peloponnese remains the premium production area of high ​​quality extra virgin olive oil for cooking, in particular thanks to the variety of Greek koroneiki olives that are small but extremely productive olives, ideal for producing a delicate and unique extra virgin olive oil full of benefits.

We suggest trying the Greek olive oil on a slice of bread to better appreciate its taste and soft shades. With a generally delicate taste, the Greek extra virgin olive oil is ideal for seasoning meat tartare or fish tartare and all fish dishes in general.
