Our Family Tradition
Can you name that one dish that identifies your childhood? After one smell or taste, you might imagine yourself seated at Grandma’s kitchen table or in Mom’s backyard for a family party. For us, Kasandrinos extra virgin olive oil provides the taste that takes us back to Niata, Greece where our family’s olive trees grow. We are so proud to bring a little piece of our family tradition to our friends through our olive oil, and through family photos from summers spent in Greece.
Our olive oil is 100% extra virgin. The olive used in our extra virgin olive oil is the Koroneiki which is grown in the perfectly warm and stable climate of the Southern Peloponnese and is very high in polyphenols. The ideal conditions for the olive trees cultivation combined with the early harvest and the modern machinery used to press the olives are all instrumental in our quality and authenticity guarantee. Once produced via cold extraction, the Koroneiko offers a very balanced taste that combines a perfect mix of spicy and bitter. Our olives are hand picked and cold pressed with only mechanical pressing methods, not chemically treated methods. All olives used in our oil are pressed within 48 hours of harvest, then stored in temperature sensitive, stainless steel tanks in a dry and shadowy place.
We are proud to bring our family tradition to you and hope you enjoy our Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil as much as we do. Our oil compliments the Paleo diet, raw vegan, Mediterranean diet and everything else in between. We look forward to sharing part of Greece with you.
For generations, our family has enjoyed fresh-pressed extra virgin olive oil from our trees in our village in Niata, Greece, and it was our dream to bring that part of our heritage with us to share with the rest of the world. After years of dreaming when we were little kids running around Greece, we are pleased to finally have this opportunity to share this piece of our family with yours. We both enjoy living a health lifestyle following a Paleo diet and being involved in everything from Crossfit to movnat to running to yoga and anything else we can come up with. We truly believe in health and only want the best food available. We want to share our oil with all our customers because we know the difference a quality olive oil can make on your life (and taste buds).
We hope you enjoy our Extra-Virgin Olive oil, and hope that it brings you many good memories, just as it did for us.
