Highly prized for its fine flavour, olive oil has been widely used particularly in Crete since the earliest historical times. In Greek mythology, the olive tree was the symbol of Athena, the Greek Goddess of Wisdom. According to legend, when Athens, the most famous of ancient Greek cities, was being built, Poseidon and Athena competed for the patronage of the city which was to be granted to the one presenting the most beautiful gift. Poseidon gave the horse, but Athena planted the olive tree, whereupon the city was awarded to her and named Athens.
The Kolymvari extra virgin olive oil is extracted from the finest sun ripe olives according to a tradition going back several thousand years ago.
Kolymvari Cold is one of the finest and aromatic olive oils produced. It has an acidity rating that is extremely low, between 0 and 0,8, a quality that can be matched by very few olive oils
