Superior tasting profile, extremely low acidity and even more environmentally friendly procedures. We have developed a totally different approach in the olive tree cultivation and superior quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil production “from the tree to the bottle” .
We work with a dedicated team of farmers along with our agronomists for 12 months, for the ideal timing of harvesting, suitable transportation condition and extracted in new “top of the line ” extraction machineries and procedures, in our advanced olive mill.
Several farmers on the team recently shared their thoughts about the program, their work with olive trees, and the importance of olive oil in their families’ lives. As Terra Creta’s Markos Polakis points out, “Olive groves have always been intertwined with the fortunes and lives of the people of Crete. These people are pioneers who managed to change the traditional ways of their fathers and grandfathers,” to improve their methods in order to produce better olive oil.
The result of this collective effort is the Terra Creta Grand Cru Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which encompasses environmentally friendly planning, certified scientific cultivation practices, an ethical way of trading olive oil and a superior tasting profile. This is a unique program that aims to set the benchmark for the future.
