Sarakina Estate’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a product of cold extraction of -at the most part- early harvested olives. Our centuries-old olive trees belong primarily to the renowned Koroneiki, but also to the Ntopia (local) and wild-olive variety.
Our olive trees, aged approx. somewhere between 60 and 300 years old, take their water solely from the environment- a fact that increases the content of polyphenols in the olive oil and positively influences its aromas, aftertaste and beneficial attributes.
The actions all of us farmers choose to take, every decision we make concerning our crop, affects the quality and quantity of the final product as well as the general condition and health of the soil and of course the plants themselves.
In our case, we were lucky enough to receive from the former administrators an olive grove above all pure, with centuries-old olive trees, accustomed to dealing with nature’s challenges pretty much on their own.
The family’s agricultural tradition has always consisted of mild techniques anyway, meaning basically avoiding the all so popular use of chemicals and accepting that “some olives will fall down”, that a -small hopefully- part of our annual production will be lost, because we can’t and don’t have to fully control nature.
Taking this tradition a step further, and accepting that consumers need guarantees beyond our words, we have applied for an organic certification from the Inspection and Certification Body for Organic Products- Bio Hellas since 2015 and by November 2018 our extra virgin olive oil will be officially called organic.
Due to our general philosophy and respect for nature, we are committed to offering natural products we can be proud of, products that before and above everyone else, we ourselves consume daily. If you wish to know the fascinating details of it all, you can always visit our blog and read on.
