Paradosie Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Our small olive groves of Messinian land, are a true gift of nature, delivered to us with respect from our grandparents. These lands have suitable soil and a micro climate, that grows the olives that produce our olive oil, in the optimal natural way. Our olive trees’ are of the famous Koroneiki variety, which is an indigenous variety, that first appeared in Messinia. These trees love Messinia so much that they can be found growing in the wild, without the influence of humans. Over the years, techniques have evolved and the proper expertise has been acquired so that the fruits of the olive tree produce our exquisite extra virgin olive oil that every person must taste. This is the Paradosie Legacy. You can check out the characteristics of our Paradosie Extra Virgin Olive Oil:
Our Paradosie Extra Virgin Olive Oil is distinguished by its dark green color and its low acidity. Together with the other characteristics of its chemical analysis it earns the classification of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. According to its organoleptic characteristics, (depending on the climate each year), usually our olive oil has a fruity and slightly spicy taste. The wild herbs surrounding our olive trees play an important role in the flavors that the olive oil ends up with. There is a variation of the local flora, rich in wild flowers and herbs, so every crop, surprises us a bit differently each year.
We respect the latest methods and European standards for pressing the olive fruit, extracting the olive oil and storing it safely. We strictly follow all European Union regulations ensuring that our Paradosie Extra Virgin Olive Oil is delicious and safe to eat.

The grinding is done by mechanical means in modern centrifugal mills (olive oil press) with ISO certified procedures for food safety and stored in special tin containers. The Extra Virgin Olive Oil is then bottled with its Paradosie label and delivered according to EU regulations.
