In the Ancient Greeks’ time, olive oil made from unripe, or “early harvest” olives was an invaluable medicine in the hands of Greek doctors. Hippocrates, considered to be the “Father of Western Medicine,” documented 60 different health conditions that could be treated with such olive oil. Greeks today still enjoy the health benefits and amazing flavor of extra virgin oil made from unripe olives. With Mythocia Olympia PGI Early Harvest, you taste the richness of Koroneiki olives, the “queen of olives” in Greece - harvested carefully by hand at just the right time to produce such a premium oil.
What Is PGI Olympia?
PGI stands for “Protected Geographical Indication”. It means that the olives which produce this extra virgin olive oil are all grown in a specific region, in this case, Ancient Olympia.
This most award winning EVOO was born in the land of Ancient Olympia using only the best olives from the year’s early harvest season. The warm and stable climate and exceptional soil of our area are responsible for Mythocia’s Olympia PGI Early Harvest’s one of a kind taste.
Did you know?
Olives are a stone fruit much like cherries, peaches, plums, and apricots. What we all call “oil” is really more of a fresh fruit juice in this case. Real extra virgin olive oil is extracted with purely mechanical means, without heat or chemicals and no refinement whatsoever.
The enemies of extra virgin olive oil are light, heat, and oxygen. Store in a cool, dark place. Enjoy your olive “juice” as quickly as possible once it has been opened. These bottles come with a special pour spout which only let’s liquid out and prevents air from entering.
