Part of the proceeds from the sale of this olive oil goes for the support of the Vranas Olive Press Museum, which iws located within the estate.

Product History
Extra virgin olive oil is the purest form of oil that comes straight from the olive trees, without having undergone industrial processing. It has a strong fruity taste and the distinct aroma of freshly cut olives. A pleasant bitterness and a short- term burning sensation in the esophagus can be present. With a striking 75% of Greek olive oil production to be extra virgin, Greece holds the first position worldwide in its production. Expressed in oleic acid, Extra Virgin Olive oil is the olive oil whose acidity does not exceed 0.8%. Acidity is one of the main criteria for the olive oil quality and the lower the acidity, the higher the quality.

GAEA
Gaea was founded in 1995. Our name didn’t come about by accident; in ancient Greek mythology, Gaea was Mother Earth—a symbol of fertility and the goodness of the earth. As such, our vision has been to introduce the world to the benefits of the Greek Mediterranean diet by combining exquisite Greek products based on olive oil with our penchant for tradition and simplicity. Gaea is much more than elegantly-packaged wholesome foods and fine ingredients. It is a genuine philosophy of life, at the core of which is a deep appreciation for nature. We’ve always favoured non-aggresive harvesting over large volumes and high yields. And although we invest heavily in research and employ cutting-edge technology, we never stray too much from time-honoured practices. Our goal is to become international ambassadors not just of top-quality olive oil products, but of a better, healthier, more fulfilling way of eating—and living.

Lesvos

Lesvos is an island of ancient historical interest - an island which has been conquered by many different populations. It was originally inhabited around 3200-2400 BC and in 1100 BC it was colonized by the Aeolians. In the years that followed, it was occupied by Romans, Byzantines and finally by the Turks until 1912, the year when Lesvos was reunited with Greece. Lesvos is situated in the northern Aegean Sea and it is the third largest island of Greece. Its archaeological sites, impressive and dominant Byzantine and Venetian castles, the monasteries and the churches but also the traditional villages, all reveal the island’s history throughout the years. Lesvos can proudly boast about its glorious mountains, valleys, sandy bays and beaches, hot springs and the most impressive “Petrified Forest” which is a must-see for every nature-lover visiting this exquisite island.
