Why the First Olives of the Season Make the Best Olive Oil

star first harvest olive oil

The best extra virgin olive oil is made from the very first olives of the season. For the growing number of keen olive oil fans, the delicious, healthy result is pure ambrosia.

Since it is made from olives that haven’t yet fully ripened, that is, ones that are still green (which is why it is also known as green olive oil), it packs a powerful punch on all the senses.

It has a fruity flavor and aroma evocative of green olive leaves, fresh grass, tomatoes and fig trees, which makes it ideal for eating raw. It also has a striking, deep green color.

The olives chosen for this very select extra virgin olive oil are cold-pressed at under 27 ºC to capture and retain all their goodness. Pure and simple olive juice.

Extra virgin olive oil from the first olives of the season strike a delicate balance between spicy, sweet and bitter and has a higher concentration of polyphenols and natural antioxidants.
