Frequently Asked Questions

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the finest quality olive oil with an excellent odor, the most flavorful, densely nutrient and the most expensive. This premium-grade olive oil is cold-pressed at an optimal temperature not exceeding 27⁰C/80⁰F to ensure its freshness and purity, as it has not been exposed to any external heat, chemicals, or other refining processes. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is different from other olive oils because it must be less than or equal to 0.08% acidity, making it the lowest acidity when compared to other olive oils. It contains all the natural antioxidants, vitamins E and K, minerals, and polyphenols that are essential for a healthy diet.

Polyphenols are naturally occurring antioxidants found in plants that have been shown to help protect against chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. In extra virgin olive oil, these compounds help improve blood flow and reduce inflammation in the body. They also contribute to the unique flavor and aroma of our Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

At Elenitsa’s Gourmet, we are passionate about producing the best Extra Virgin Olive Oil. We take great care in selecting and harvesting the finest olives from Greece, which is known as one of the best olive-producing countries in the world. Our cold-press process preserves all its organoleptic qualities and nutrients.

Currently we offer our “Special Select" custom blend predominantly consisting of the distinguished Lianolia olive variety known for its naturally high yields of antioxidants and 99.9% of it being found exclusively on the island of Corfu.

Another well-known variety offered on the island of Corfu is Koroneiki. It mainly exists in other parts of Greece in the Peloponnese region, however over time, it has made its way to the island and Elenitsa’s also cultivates and harvests the Koroneiki variety. It is noted that the organoleptic characteristics of this variety differs from region to region. Our olive groves are in close proximity to the sea and the soil is quite rocky, all contributing to the final taste and organoleptic characteristics of our EVOO as described below in the “Special Select” description.
