Our Koroneiki monovarietal Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is being produced at the family owned Agrilia Estate, on the small picturesque island of Antiparos, surrounded by the Aegean Sea breeze and the salubrious Mediterranean sun. Agrilia in Greek means “Wild Olive Tree”. The ancient Greeks considered the olive tree a symbol of glory and victory that is why they crowned the Olympic champions with a wreath made of wild olive (kotinos).
Agrilia Organic Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil is hand-picked in early October where the olives are still green and healthy. Olives are pressed within 3 hours from harvest and in temperatures below 77oF to ensure that the olive oil produced will come to you fresh, flawless,and with a rich bouquet of aromas and flavors. The uniqueness of our olive grove’s terroir andthe right cultivation - milling practices applied,produce extra virgin olive oil with a high concentration of beneficial polyphenols (antioxidants) ideal for maintaining your body’s health and well-being.
