In Greece there are unique cultivars of olive trees, such as the Koroneiki, which has its long history tied with Greece and did not grow in other olive oil producing countries until recently. The chemical composition of the Greek soil (rocky and dry) in combination with a climate favorable to olive oil (temperate climate, extensive sunlight and relatively stable temperatures without great fluctuations) enhance the olive oil’s organoleptic characteristics leading to the production of olive oil of the finest quality.
Origin & History
A host of archaeological evidence reveals the existence of olive trees in the Hellenic territory since the Neolithic era, namely 7,000 years ago. The olive has been considered by Greeks a blessed fruit since antiquity: an emblem of knowledge, wisdom, abundance, health, power and beauty. Legends, traditions, religious and athletic ceremonies have relied upon it. The olive branch was awarded to the winners of the Olympic Games since 776 B.C. and in antiquity it symbolized the peace and mandatory truce all over the world throughout the duration of the Games.
