Product Description
The "Ladolea" organic extra virgin olive oil comes from the Ladolia of Patra (a.k.a. Patrinia) variety cultivated in the olive groves lazily sunning themselves on the seaside of Corinthia. The olives are harvested somewhat early (November 10-30). At that time, the olives are still relatively unripe (a "must" for exceptional extra virgin olive oil) but bursting with aromas and nutritional elements. The olives are then cold-pressed within 24 hours as of their harvest. The olive oil produced is initially stored in stainless steel tanks before it is poured into its opaque ceramic bottles unfiltered. You can tell the organic extra virgin olive oil crafted by "Ladolea" by its golden-leaf color, its delicate aroma, its subtle fruitiness, and its notes of freshly mowed grass. Use it to enhance other delicate flavors but don’t forget the ultimate, sublime experience: Drizzle it raw over salads or grilled fish!

Panos is a chemical engineer. His brother, Thanos, is an economist. As the young and driven Greeks that they are, they decided to turn to Greece’s and Corinthia’s most prominent ambassador: olive oil. Proud of their Greek roots, modern visionaries who believe tradition is the way forward, the Kloutsiniotis brothers and their Ladolea team set their hearts on acquainting the whole world with historical Corinthia’s precious olive oil. Yet, to them, that was not enough. They were determined to showcase it the perfect way. Not only did they want to produce rare, monovarietal olive oils but they were also determined that the packaging would be unique and exclusive to Ladolea. Their olive oil comes in a handmade ceramic bottle whose design drew its inspiration from the aryballos: A small, globular or spherical, ceramic flask with a narrow neck, the ancient Greek aryballos was reminiscent of ancient Greek wine pourers and contained unguents or oil. Athletes would hang it from their wrist by a strap and use it in the baths to anoint their bodies with, before or after the Olympic Games, while the aristocracy would cherish it as a vessel where they could store their very best scents or oils.

Korinthia

The region of Korinthos was the largest commercial centre in ancient Greece. During its history, it had been occupied by Macedonians, Romans, Byzantines, Franks, Venetians, Ioannites Knights of Rhodes and Turks. Ancient fortresses, citadels, ancient monuments, Byzantine churches, reservoirs, cobbled streets, towers and arches, all testify the city's glorious past. Korinthia’s landscape exerts a strange attraction to visitors - the picturesque mountain villages of “Mountainous Korinthia”, with its stone-built houses, pine covered mountains, fir and oak trees, lakes, natural hot springs, the lagoon, the caves and of course its beautiful beaches.
