We really went back to our roots on this one, as Koroneiki olive trees have been growing in Greece for over 3,000 years. Not only is Greece one of the top producers in the world, they also consume about twice as much olive oil per capita than any other country. The Koroneiki olive has received more awards than any other Greek export so we knew we had found the best. We purchase our olives directly from the source, farmers, which ensures an unadultered, higher quality product.
With a stunning greenish gold hue, our Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil exudes a subtle aroma of fresh greens. However, the scent does not truly expose the grassy and robust flavor of this oil. Left unblended and unfiltered, the Koroneiki olive shines, offering a delightful peppery sensation. Perfect for those who prefer a pungent, full bodied oil. We take pride in creating the purest olive oil from the finest ingredients that nature provides, giving you a true taste of Greece every time.
Yioryo olive oils are especially high in polyphenols (antioxidants) and vitamins. Olive oil is also full of health promoting nutrients that can positively affect many ailments. So use our Koroneiki Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil like the Greeks do—generously!
Harvesting: our olives never touch the soil. Using mechanical and hand picking methods, we ensure that our olives never touch the soil. The real insurance however are the “elaiopana”, these are large canvas sheets that are placed below the trees during the harvest to ensure that olives don’t touch the soil.
Pressing: First cold press. We press our olives by dawn the next morning for reasons of quality. Also, to ensure an impressively low acidity.
Filtering: We believe in allowing our olive oil to settle rather than agitating it through a violent filtering process. Filtering will allow you to market the olive oil faster, however it does impact the lifespan, flavor and color of the olive oil. Nature continues to work for us as gravity separates residual sediment from the oil. These sediments are a natural byproduct of unfiltered olive oil.
Storage: we store our olive oil in basements with moderate humidity and temperatures that range from 40-65 degrees. It is imperative that we limit our olive oil’s exposure from hot temperatures as we believe it affects the product’s quality.
