Fondas Olive - Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Crete - 1 liter
Fondas Olive Extra Virgin Olive Oil is traditionally produced olive oil from Greece. It is made in small batches by the Tzirtzilakis family. They have maintained their 74 olive trees on Crete with love and passion for over 100 years.
This is the crème de la crème of olive oil. Made entirely from one type of olive: the Koroneiki olive, also known as the queen of olives.
The harvest is one of the most important moments in the olive grove and every year the family does this together with the local farmer Dimitris. As soon as the olives get a darker color at the end of the year, it is time for the harvesting process. They harvest in the traditional way, safely collecting the olives with green nets under the olive trees.
They then transport the olives in reusable sacks to the local factory where the production process starts almost immediately. This is important for the best quality olive oil and that quality is there. Extra Virgin olive oil may have a maximum acidity of 0.8%. Fondas olive oil is better: an acidity of only 0.2%!
The entire production of Fondas olive oil is organized locally. A traditional product from a small olive grove from Crete.
