Description

Mix & Match Crete

Crete, the largest and most populous island on the southern tip of Greece, lies between three continents (Europe, Asia and Africa) and three seas (Aegean, Ionian and Libyan) and is characterized by a temperate climate with imposing mountain ranges and fertile plateaus and lowland. It hosts rich plantations and rare herbs, while the cultivation of olives has always been a traditional activity of the inhabitants, inextricably linked to their way of life.

At the eastern end of the island, in the region of Chania, olive trees of the Koroneiki variety are primarily grown, as in the rest of Crete, as well as Tsounati, a primitive variety, known since the Minoan years, which has been cultivated uninterruptedly on the island ever since. In the southern part of this region, in a mountainous and rocky area, with an ideal microclimate and soil composition, Pamako Organic Blend EVOO is produced. It combines almost in balance the two local varieties, emerging aromas and flavors influenced by the flora of the Cretan land. North of the county, in a semi-flat area where the climate is particularly dry, combining mainly the Koroneiki and to a lesser extent the Tsounati variety, Oreino Marakas Organic EVOO was created, a balanced olive oil with rich flavoring characteristics. In the fertile plateau of Ziros in Sitia, in the region of Lassithi, at the northeastern tip of Crete and at an altitude of 600 meters, extend the olive groves of Koroneiki variety. In an area of particular geophysical value – within the Sitia Geopark which is part of the UNESCO World Geoparks Network and a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) for the production of olive oil, Ziro Early Harvest EVOO is produced.
