Traditional Cretan olives "Alatsolies" are made with local olives from Gergeri by the women of "IDAIA GH".

These little wrinkly olives are the traditional Cretan olives "Alatsolies" which are made with lots of  "alatsi" (salt) and then are kept in saltwater.

"Alatsolies" are also called raisin-olives due to their shape which looks wrinkly like raisins. They are ideal to accompany lots of tradinional Greek meze, salads and foods. Enjoy with a shot of Cretan Raki.

The producer

Vassilakis Estate

Since 1865, the Vassilakis family has produced extra virgin olive oil on their estate in the Mirabello region of Crete, one of the area’s first olive producers. The current Vassilakis generation took over in 1980, preserving time-honoured cultivating and harvesting methods that respect the environment, while investing in state-of-the art extraction, standardization and storage facilities, all of which ensure that Vassilakis Estate olive oils’ superior taste and nutritional values are brought fresh to your table.

The philosophy of the Vassilakis Estate in a nutshell is to offer good food the Vassilakis family enjoys to a wider audience. It is well known that the Cretan diet, of which olive oil is a staple, is very healthy. Other Vassilakis Estate produce includes: a unique eating olive, “Mouratolia”, known locally as the “queen of the eating olives” and Tsikoudia, a traditional Cretan spirit distilled from grapes.
