Ktima Olon Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml
Olon Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil
The “Olon Estate” (“Ktima Olon”, in Greek) was built in 2007 by Tasis and Rena Laskaridis and is located at the village of Kontias, Lemnos.
An organic olive grove, fruit trees, a vegetable patch and farm animals co-exist in their estate where we follow organic practices.
As there was no tradition in the production of olive oil on the island – curious to see if the island could produce quality olive oil – They started in 2007 by planting 300 trees of three varieties Koroneiki , Kothreiki (Manaki) and Adramyttini.
Theirolive oil is premium extra virgin unfiltered. The harvesting is made in mid -October by hands and the bottling done within 24 hours from the harvest. Their olive oil has been recognises world wide as it is high in polyphenols, bearing a health claim that meets the E.U. regulation 432/2012 requirements.
“We recommend consuming it raw in the morning, on salads, or with boiled and grilled vegetables and roasted meat,” they said. “The mildly bitter aftertaste you may sense is the result of the low oil’s acidity, and a slight burn in your throat is caused by the beneficial compounds in our olive oil.”
Many Australians who have visited Limnos as part of Maeve O'Meara's Gourmet Safari Tours have been welcomed into this beautiful olive grove and enjoyed tastings.
