Description

Olive oil Sarakina Tsounato 4L

The olive oil Sarakina is the only Tsounato extra virgin olive oil produced worlwide. It is extracted from the Tsounati olive which is indigenous only in Crete and more specifically in the region of Chania in western Crete.

Tsounati is an olive grown in centenarian trees. The tree branches are not whipped during olive picking to prevent them from getting hurt. Instead nets are put under the trees and the olives fall when they are naturally mature. Every second day the olives are collected, while the tsounati olive harvesting takes 6 to7 months from November to May.

Tsounato is a special olive oil totally different from all the other known olive oils, because the olive stays on the tree until it is completely mature and its taste is mild and sweet. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, phenols and all the other beneficial ingredients of olive oil. It is the olive oil which you will love most of all raw and because of its sweet taste, it is the kid's favourite with grilled bread with oil and oregano (cretan bruschetta) .

This 4L can is ideal for those who have tasted Sarakina oil and search for a bigger and more economical practical package.

The producer

Sarakina by Sfinarolis Family

Sfinarolis family's 80 years experience in olive tree cultivationn translates in the production of the high quality olive oil Sarakina. Their privately-owned olive groves were planted by their grandfathers with love and tender care and today they continue their family tradition with the same love and care, always in complete harmony with the natural environment of Crete. Their Olive-groves are found in over 400 meters elevation, over the mountainous region of Sarakina in South-western Crete. The varieties of olive trees in their region are the "Tsounati" which flourishes exclusively in this region of Crete and "Koronaiki". Those varieties in that particular climatic (full sunlight, high rainfalls, low humidity) and geomorphologic (inclining grounds) conditions of our region give physiochemical and organoleptic characteristics to their "Extra Virgin Olive oil from Selino county in Crete".
