Steeped in Tradition
Harvesting olives for oil involves both art and science. Picking the fruit gently yet quickly so that the olives can be milled within hours requires precision, skill and timing. But the art lies in knowing when the fruit is at their perfect ripeness. Harvested too soon, and the olive oil is bitter. Too late, and the oil lacks depth of flavour.
At Etesian Gold, our olives are selected carefully by hand and carried in baskets, never touching the soil and never coming in contact with anything that could compromise their taste. This ensures that our oil is produced only from protected, unblemished fruit at their height of sun-ripened perfection.
