"Holy mount"

ultra premium

extra virgin

olive oil

Following the tradition of our family at agriculture and production of limited high-quality organic food, we want to offer you this unique  EVO (extra virgin olive) oil.

 

"Holy Mount" premium EVO oil is produced only by cold extraction methods and at low temperatures, so we secure the maximum aroma and nutrients in it. The time of harvesting, the maturity of the olives, as well as the times in every level of the pressing of the olives, are extremely important specs to help us achieve the maximum health and the lowest possible acidity level. 

 

  But let's check together all these small details that make this olive oil so special and healthy!

Sustainable farming

The olive tree is a living organism. It needs water, sun, oxygen, nutrients, and love. The first four are generously offered by Mother Nature. 

Our job as farmers is to find the balance and manage to offer at the tree what is missing from these highly important preconditions!

We must manage that the tree has enough healthy branches and leaves to ensure that it will start producing its fruits, the precious olives.

We must ensure that the leaves will have enough sun exposure to convert the eternal light of the Greek sun into oxygen and nutrients through nature's magnificent procedure.

From these human technics and experience comes the Love!  

Looking at our logo at your left this is our story:

The harvesting

 

The good quality of Evo oil must have strong fruity aroma (olive is a fruit!), slight peppery sensation (presence of polyphenols and antioxidants), slight bitterness (fresh olives are bitter). 

These three must be found at any healthy olive oil to categorized as extra virgin olive oil (EVO). 

 

In order to ensure these unique health factors we collect our olives directly from the tree with the less possible damage during the harvesting.

Next, the olives are stored at special plastic boxes that provide enough fresh air and cool conditions. In the next hours, the collected healthy and green olives must be pressed through the cold extraction pressing system methods.

Time is everything when we speak about freshness! 

The extraction of the olive oil

 

The most important stage of the production of the EVO oil is the pressing and the extraction. Clearness and timing is everything. The fresh olives are separated from the leaves and being washed carefully. 

The machinery must be perfectly cleaned before the starting of the procedure. The olives are smashed with the minimum oxygen exposure during the procedure and no water at all to ensure that the polyphenols, antioxidants, and the reach fruity aroma will remain original and naturally preserved. The smashed olives are then transferred to special tanks with controlled temperatures and conditions where they are mixed slowly to start forming the olive oil.

After precise time at the tanks, the olive mix is passing through the decanters which separate mechanically the olive oil from the solid remnants of the fruit. This is happening twice to ensure the maximum purification.

Filtering and maintenance

 

Our olive oil is ready. The aroma is extremely reach and fruity the taste is fresh and full of pleasant Picante flavors due to the reach polyphenols content.

 

Filtering is the key to preserve all these precious and unique characteristics. This is happening immediately after the extraction to get the maximum purification. After filtering the final product is stored at ISO qualified inox tanks or directly packaged in dark bottles. At any case, the olive oil is protected from the sun and the oxygen, its two bigger enemies.  

The maintenance is equally important with the production!

 

At our visitable underground cellar, the conditions are perfect.  A temperature lower than 15 degrees C, controlled humidity levels as well as absolute protection from the sun and the oxygen, guarantee that "Holy Mount" ultra-premium Extra virgin olive oil will maintain its extremely Low acidity (continuously between 0.08 - 0.13% the last three years) from the healthiest ones around Europe!
