More about our Early Harvest EVOO

Acidity 0.21% | Polyphenols 320 | Fall 2020 Harvest | Current stock bottled March 2021

Our Early Harvest extra virgin olive oil is produced by the Kotsovolos family in the beautiful mountain village of Christianoupolis in Messenia, Greece. Like their cousins, the Hinaris family who produce our Private Reserve oil, the Kotsovoloses have been at this for more than 100 years!

Koroneiki olives are handpicked early in the season while still green to produce the prized ‘early harvest’ oil, known in Greece as ‘agoureleo.’  Once harvested, the olives are crushed within hours to preserve the quality, taste and aroma of the olives.

Our  Early Harvest oil has the aroma of green figs and fresh green herbs with hints of wild asparagus and flat leaf parsley and thyme. The taste is light, fresh and herbal with a slight chicory bitterness and mild peppery heat, following by a short nutty finish

And because it is a true agoureleo, this oil is rich green in color, and robust and pungent due to the high level of antioxidants.  You may feel a slight burning sensation on your tongue and in your throat – this pungency is often described as a ‘peppery’ finish.

We enjoy Early Harvest in all our salads, and recipes like this simple Mediterranean olive oil pasta; and as a finishing oil to enhance soups, fish, and poultry dishes.

    Tastes great on its own, mixed with the spices you can get on this site for bread dipping, perfect for sautéing veggies, and making salad dressing as well. SO GOOD.

    Delicious

    Alison McGowan (verified owner)

    Just received the bundle and first thing I did was dip a crusty bread in the Early Harvest. Excellent! Then I followed the basic recipe for olive oil pasta but I used roasted butternut squash spaghetti and added roasted shrimp. It was delicious!

      George – We are very transparent about harvest date, bottling date, place of origin, and quality tests like the polyphenols and acidity levels. All this information is published on the website product page in the product description. We only display this information on the website because this information changes every year and with each new batch of olive oil we purchase. This prevents us from having to redesign and reprint new labels every time we receive a new batch. Please refer to the product description section of this olive oil to see all the information you are looking for. Additionally, the best buy date is stamped in black on every bottle at the bottom of the neck of the bottle.

    I am not by any means usually someone who likes the taste of plain olive oil, but this stuff is fantastic! I usually by olive oil from Costco, and decided to splurge on this to see if it was any different, and it was! It’s smooth and delicious! 5 stars!

    Amazing Olive Oil!

    Dorothy Shields (verified owner)

    I received my oil last week, and it is amazing! I tasted it by dipping bread in the oil, and my goodness it was good! I haven’t tasted olive oil this good since a trip in 2010 to Italy when I visited a private estate/vineyard and tasted their olive oil. I remember it tasted like butter, and this was the same. So smooth, so good, seriously the best I’ve tasted. I highly recommend this to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

    Wonderful EVOO!!

    Ann Holliday (verified owner)

    This Olive Oil is so much better than any other I have tasted. It is so light and has a wonderful aroma and taste. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting it to be any better than other olive oils but it is the best. Other oils have a thick taste and are very heavy in my opinion. This one tastes so clean!! I will buy the Private Reserve next. I love this website for the wonderful Mediterranean recipes and products offered. Thank you!!

    Drizzled this over seared lamb, that was seasoned with Cardamom, Sweet Spanish Paprika, and chopped fresh sage. But before I did so, I opened the bottle and got the scent of this oil. It smells so fresh and alive. That may sound strange, but most olive oils from standard stores just smell flat. And they taste that way too. When we ate the meal, the olive oil added the perfect finish to the lamb. I am so grateful for Suzy and all of the wonderful things she offers.
