A Land Blessed by Nature
Greece, nestled in the East cove of the Mediterranean Sea, has been blessed with a remarkable environment for olive cultivation. As you traverse the rocky terrain and inhale the fresh sea breeze, you can't help but feel the energy of the land. The limestone soils, combined with the exceptional weather characterized by mild winters and abundant sunshine, create the perfect conditions for the olive tree to thrive. It is not just what the people at Vendema do as producers that sets them apart; it is the inherent gifts bestowed upon them by the land itself.
Embracing the Singular Beauty
In the pursuit of excellence, the focus at Vendema has been directed towards a single varietal: the Koroneiki olive. With its renowned stability and high phenolic content, this olive variety delivers precisely what is desired. Mixing and blending are not engaged in; instead, the very best fruits are selected at an early stage to ensure that no enhancements are required for the olive oil. The result is a pure, organic product that mirrors the true colors, captivating aromas, and abundant nutrients of Greece's finest olives. The olive oil serves as a testament to the simplicity and magnificence found in a single varietal.
Harvesting at the Peak
The freshest flavors and maximum nutritional value are captured by carefully selecting the harvest date of the olives. Ideally, the olives are harvested in October when the fruits are at their prime. This ensures that the optimal nutritional content, delightful aromas, and exquisite flavors of the olive oil are retained. With Vendema, the vibrant essence of freshly harvested olives can be experienced in every bottle.
Crafted to Perfection
At Vendema, perfection is not aspired for; it is a way of life. Starting from the moment the olives are harvested, the journey toward greatness is embarked upon. The olive oil is stored in stainless steel containers, protected from sunlight, and subject to meticulous temperature control, ensuring the preservation of its freshness and exceptional qualities. With great care, each bottle is sealed, encapsulating the passion and dedication that form the core of this extraordinary product.
