The Lantzanakis family has been growing organic extra virgin olive oil since 1995 on their estate in Sitia, Crete.
The olive trees, from which this oil is produced, are family property over generations. The family estate is located in the region of the mountainous village Krya. The olives are organically and biodynamicly cultivated with natural and traditional methods under the control of DIO (Certification & Inspection Organisation of Organic Products).
The olives are collected by hand and mechanical means and immediately cold pressed according to modern procedures and professionally bottled at family’s packing station. The fact that the olives are deriving from a single estate and from unique olive tree species makes this oil one-of-a-kind.
Sitia belongs to one of the few regions that have received the EU quality certification (P.D.O. – Protected Designation of Origin). Olive Oil Sitia P.D.O. defines the special and unique quality attributes (color, flavor, aroma) of the olive oil produced in Sitia which has repeatedly been awarded in international competitions.
