Or Agrilia, the wild olive (Olea europea var. sylvestris) is the ancestor of today’s olive and grows almost all over the Mediterranean where the climate favors the cultivation of olives.

Contrary to many people’s beliefs, olive oil aromas are not endogenous to the fruit, but are produced by the activity of olive enzymes in the olive oil extraction process (crushing-malaxation). They depend largely on the variety of the olive, the degree of ripeness of the fruit at harvest as well as the milling practices.
HARVEST: Fall 2020
As any fresh and very sensitive to oxidation product, olive oil must be consumed within 18 months from the harvest time, for enjoying all its aromas, flavors and health benefits. In the Northern Hemisphere where Greece is, the harvest is taking place from October to January.
