Fondas Olive - Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Crete - 1 litre
Fondas Olive Extra Virgin Olive Oil is artisanally produced olive oil from Greece. It is made in small quantities by the Tzirtzilakis family. They have been tending their 74 olive trees in Crete with love and passion for more than 100 years
This is the crème de la crème among olive oils. Made entirely from one olive variety: the Koroneiki olive, also called a queen among olives.
Harvesting is one of the most important moments in the olive grove and every year the family does it together with local farmer Dimitris. Once the olives turn a darker colour at the end of the year, it is time for the harvesting process. They harvest in the traditional way, using green nets under the olive trees to catch the olives safely.
They then transport the olives in reusable burlap sacks to the local factory where the production process is started almost immediately. This is important for the best quality olive oil and that quality is there. Extra Vierge olive oil should have an acidity of no more than 0.8%. Fondas olive oil is better: an acidity of just 0.2%!
The entire production of Fondas olive oil is organised locally. An artisan product from a small olive grove in Crete.
100% Koroneiki Olives
