Iris oil: A rare olive oil
Its acidity, which is less than 0.3, its richness in polyphenol(132 ppm) and a-tocepherol (vitamin E) (278 ppm), its fruity aroma and its light spicy flavor make it not just an ordinary olive oil, but also a medicinal or herbal supplement which is highly beneficial to our health.
Cultivation – production methods
Since our sole objective is to ensure the purity of our olive oil, our methods of cultivation could not be anything but natural and traditional.
Our olive grove is situated in a historical place which is a paradise in every way. Because we cherish our history, we wanted to discover the methods followed by the Ancient Greeks to produce the fabled olive-oil of the age of antiquity. By studying ancient methods and asking the older people of the village, we learnt many secrets about the olive and olive oil. Our small production output is bottled and sent to our customers, and its quality lies in the age-old recipes and methods followed by those who cultivated the ancient wild olive.
The natural watering from the rain in Vonitsa during the winter and from the springs of Korpi in summer, the mild climate of the coastal olive grove which does not see sharp variations in temperature and, of course, the ancient variety of wild olives grafted onto the Koronian variety, are all encapsulated within each bottle of “Iris” olive oil, together with the love and care taken by our family.
