Navarino Icons Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, produced without any chemical fertilizers or pesticides, using the time-honored organic methods, is made from the acclaimed Koroneiki variety olives, sustainably grown in centuries-old groves. Carefully gathered by hand without mecanical means, these organic olives are taken to a nearby mill within a few hours from picking to maintain all the valuable components and guarantee the lowest olive oil acidity. The olives are immediately cold pressed and malaxed less than 20 minutes in order to preserve their lovely fruity and spicy flavor and distinctive aroma.
Our Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is stored in small stainless steel tanks with nitrogen (N2) gas feeding equipment and cooling jacket coverage to maintain temperature stabilization and preservation.
The story of olive oil at Costa Navarino is as old as Greece itself. To Homer it was “liquid gold”. Hippocrates described it as “the great therapeutic”. The earliest written form of “olive” and “olive oil” appears on clay tablets inscribed in Linear B, which date to the 13th century BC. These tablets were discovered in the Palace of Nestor at Pylos, providing evidence that Messinia was among the first regions to cultivate the sacred tree of the goddess Athena. One of the oldest recorded olive trees in the world still thrives in Kalamata, where it continues to blossom and produce olives after 17 centuries.
