Navarino Icons Eleon is produced from the acclaimed Koroneiki variety olives and from centuries- old trees grown within Costa Navarino estates. The majority of our trees are 200 – 1000 years old and sit at an altitude of 300 to 500m. The unique breeze from the Ionian sea in combination with the morphology of the soil plays a significant role in ensuring we consistently produce an excep- tional crop. Our olives are transported in plastic crates to preserve their quality and are then tak- en to a nearby mill within two hours of picking, in order to maintain their distinct nutritional char- acteristics. The olives are immediately cold pressed and malaxed less than 20 minutes in order to preserve their fruity and spicy flavor and distinct aroma. Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil is stored in small stainless steel tanks with nitrogen (N2) gas feeding equipment and cooling jacket coverage to maintain temperature stabilization and preservation.
