Premium Olive Goods from Halkidiki Peninsula Olive Groves
In the summer of 2018, Dimitris & Nikos, two young men with entrepreneurial spirit decided to turn their love & knowledge for olives & olive oil but also for history & environment into a business venture… & “klēa” was born in Nea Tenedos of the Chalkidiki peninsula, where their olive groves are also located. The name derives from the ancient Greek words “κλέος” (kléos), meaning glory, & “ελαία” (elaíā), meaning olive (tree or fruit).
“Elaiolado Halkidikis” is a monovarietal extra virgin olive oil from “Galani Metagitsiou” olives, a Halkidiki’s peninsula rare variety. The word “galani” means light blue & is given to the variety due to the hue of its leaves. The finest olives of the grove are collected in November & the olive oil extraction process takes place within a few hours from harvest & at temperatures below 25°C. The result is a smooth, delicate & well-balanced extra virgin olive oil with a hint of sweetness (reminiscent of fresh grass & vegetables with a mouthfeel of green almond & a hint of black pepper).
Enjoy this glorious extra virgin olive oil!
