Pure is as pure does and this extra virgin olive oil produced by Monastery Estate is crafted the old-fashioned Greek way in limited quantities: the land of Crete and Cretan tradition in every fragrant drop, every time!
With a view to meeting the demand by customers who ask for the old-fashioned, traditional flavours of the past crafted in contemporary state-of-the-art ways, Monastery Estate produces its extra virgin olive oil in limited quantities. Crafted with loving care by the Vourakis Family, the Monastery Estate extra virgin olive oil hails from the ancient olive groves of the fertile region of Chania, Crete. The olives produced come from the slowly-maturing, local "Tsounati" variety. The process involved in the olive oil extraction is thorough, exhaustively monitored, and traditional, without a trace of modern intervention that could compromise this fine extra virgin olive oil's sensory characteristics. It is worth noting that, in earlier times, the "Tsounati" olive variety was much maligned, a "misunderstanding" that originated in the old practices of delaying harvesting (due to adverse terrain conditions) and thus leading to downgraded production. According to the Laboratory for Olive Cultivation experts at NAGREF, Chania's Institute for Olive Tree & and Subtropical Plants, "Tsounati is an olive variety that has been sorely misunderstood and ignored. Contrary to popular belief, it's a fantastic olive variety, yields superb olive oil, and can be wildly productive". Monastery Estate comes to boost this quality olive variety and proves it with a wonderfully traditional extra virgin olive oil featuring unique sensory characteristics redolent with the flavors and fragrances of Greece in every drop, every time.
