A product of Organic Farming from certified olive groves of the Toplou Monastery and the surrounding area of Sitia, Lasithi, Crete. It is extracted exclusively from olives of the “Koroneiki” variety. The olives are crushed in the mill a few hours after being harvested and the olive oil is extracted using a cold extraction method.
One of the leader varieties of olives known as “Koroneiki” has been cultivated with care and ardent yearning by our ancestors for many generations, a heritage continued by the Toplou Monastery, a pioneer of organic farming, combined with faith in tradition and the devotion of the local producers rendering the Extra Virgin Olive Oil PDO Sitia we produce as unique.
It is characterized by its golden green colour, its perfectly balanced bittersweet taste and its pleasant long aftertaste.
In a dominating olive cultivation area of 40 hectares belonging to the Toplou Monastery our olive groves are to be found, comprised of 6000 irrigated olive trees in a perfect microclimate.Visit Website
