A symbol of peace between nations
Did you know that…..
The olive tree has historically been a symbol of peace between nations.
The city of Athens was named after the ancient Goddess when she offered an olive tree as a gift to human beings. The olive tree was considered so valuable that they made the Goddess, the patroness of the city.
Greece has 19 P.D.O. zones (Protected Designation of Origin) & 12 P.G.I. zones (Protected Geographical Indication)
Kolymvari P.D.O- Chania, Crete
This extra virgin olive oil is made using the Koroneiki & Tsounati olive varieties. The climate & soil conditions are ideal for the cultivation of the olives.
