The Olea Estates are only a couple of miles away from the press, where the olive oil is bottled immediately after the first cold press, ensuring the freshest extra virgin olive oil that can pass your lips.
You will experience intensely flavored oil pressed from the olive fruit by purely physical means. Its acidity is very low, ranging from 0.1% to 1%. Everything that happens to this certified organic olive oil, from the root of the olive tree until it reaches your plate, is kept within the family.
Extra virgin olive oil — for your nutrition and beyond
Extra virgin olive oil is smooth, rich and a tad spicy; and an absolute staple in Greek, Italian and now American cooking. Use it as a base to your favorite pasta sauces, as a drippy dip for your fresh bread, in soups, salads — any dish (or even dessert) your heart desires. Olive oil cake is really quite splendid!
Beyond the kitchen, the ancient Greeks have long treasured the health effects of raw olive oil. Oleocanthal and asoleuropein are two natural polyphenols contained in unprocessed olive oil that have antioxidant effects.*
Olive oil is also known to reduce inflammation, support heart health and can be used topically for lustrous hair and skin.*
