Golden Olive Eleni® is certified organic extra virgin olive oil and comes from our single-estate olive grove in Greece. Tucked away in the foothills of the Peloponnese, our farm boasts over one thousand trees, and beautiful only the Mediterranean can afford. Here we produce the Koroneiki olive, a small bean-sized olive renowned for making superior olive oil.
Rather than harvesting our olives when they are ripe and black, we press our olives while they are young and green. This is referred to as the early harvest and ensures our olive oil is low in acidity (and thus, extra virgin), vivid in color, fresh tasting and full of aroma and flavour (organoleptic qualities)...making Golden Olive Eleni® unlike any other olive oil on the market.
Golden Olive Eleni® is organically grown. We do not use any chemicals, stabilizers, preservatives or additives in our farming. Instead, we prune regularly and irrigate as needed to ensure a healthy and fruitful crop. As such, our certified organic methods contribute to the superior flavour, aroma and nutritional values of Golden Olive Eleni®.
Extra virgin olive oil is not just any olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil is the cream of the crop. Only olive oils with less than 0.8 acidity can call themselves extra virgin.
As single-estate producers, we bring our olive oil in small batches. Unlike many supermarket brands, we produce only the best: certified organic extra virgin olive oil. We avoid using any fertilizers or sprays, and focus on quality over quantity. Our olive oil is fresh and flavourful. We pick our olives and press them within twenty-four hours, to avoid unwanted oxidation and impurities.
Unlike fine wines, olive oil does not improve with age. Our certified organic extra virgin olive oil is best consumed within two years of its harvest date. This is when our olive oil is its most aromatic, flavourful and nutritional. For this reason, we date stamp each of our bottles with its harvest and best-before date. We stand behind our certified organic extra virgin olive oil. A simple taste test and you'll understand the difference.
