Extra Virgin Olive Oil - Organic and Cold Pressed

Pure, undiluted and intensely flavored, from the Grecian orchard to your plate

Historians believe the cultivation of the outstanding olive began around 5000 B.C. on Crete and the neighboring Greek islands. The ancient Greeks regarded the olive tree as a gift from the goddess Athena. Homer, the immortal Greek poet, called olive oil "liquid gold."

And today, the Chronis family of Olea Estates continues a storied tradition of making fine Extra Virgin Olive Oil, directly from their estate in Sparta, Greece. Nikos Chronis and his sons George and Demosthenis are passionate about the quality of their olive oil, and so they oversee the entire process, from cultivation, to hand picking, pressing and bottling.

Frequently asked questions

Olea (gr. Ολέα, pron. [oh-le-uh]) is the ancient Greek name for olive. 

Our harvest season starts every year late November and continues until the end of January of the following year, depending on the environmental conditions and the size of the harvest. Olives in general are harvested and pressed once per year and even though harvest seasons vary slightly, all producers harvest around the same time. 

The date we have on our olive oil is a best before date (BBD) and not an expiration date, since olive oil doesn't really expire, it just deteriorates. Our olive oil maintains its quality and properties for at least 18 to 24 months after bottling, in proper storage conditions. After that it begins to very slowly deteriorate. The bottling time for our Olea Gold is at the end of the harvest season (usually January) and for our Olea is May. We continue to test our samples every few months and examine lab results to learn more about our olive oil. The above times are approximate estimates and vary by year. You may still consume the olive oil for several months after this date as well. There are regulations that apply to olive oil on how long the "best by" time period should be, but they are based on the average "olive" oil, which is often a blend with other oils and unfortunately more often than not with other vegetable oils. Our olive oil has continuously been tested to maintain its properties for significantly longer periods of time.
