A limited reserve single varietal Extra Virgin Olive Oil made of the Agrielia variety (wild olive). Vranas Estate has an exceptionally low acidity and a harmonious, elegant taste.
The Vranas Estate is a limited reserve single varietal olive oil with exceptionally low acidity, produced exclusively for GAEA from hand-picked olives that are "cold-pressed" immediately after harvesting in a privately owned mill. The "Agrielia" (wild olive) variety, which is used to produce this olive oil is unique to the northeast Aegean Sea and one of the most sought after cultivars of Lesvos, an island recognized since ancient times as one of the greatest olive oil producing territories in Greece. Part of the proceeds from the sale of this olive oil goes for the support of the Vranas Olive Press Museum, which is located within the estate. (106)

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is pure natural olive oil, without any industrial processing. It has a strong, fruity taste and an aroma of freshly collected olives. It may have a pleasantly bitter taste and also create a short burning sensation in the throat. Given the fact that 75% of the olive oil produced in Greece is extra virgin, Greece ranks first in the world in extra virgin olive oil production (the term, �extra virgin', stands for the highest quality olive oil), while it is the third largest olive oil producing country in the world. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is described as being almost free of acidity, expressed as oleic acid and not exceeding 0, 8%. Acidity is one of the most important criteria for olive oil quality, since the lower the acidity level, the better olive oil quality we get.
