All our olive oils are a blend between three different types of olives – the Kolovi, the Adramatiani, and the Lathoelia. The Kolovi and Adramatiani olives mature slowly and are black in color. They thrive in soil with slate in it. Their flavor has an intricate, fruity taste, and their olive oil color is golden yellow to a golden green. The Lathoelia thrives in lower altitudes and is bigger in size. Their color varies from a red-violet black to purple and deep black, and they are harvested only when fully ripened. Their taste is fleshy and slightly fruity and fragrant.
The harvest period for this award winning organic olive oil is between mid to late November until early January. This is when the olives are just turning from their ripe green color to their mature black color. This is what gives this olive oil its delicate taste.
