Patima Cretan Extra Virgin Olive Oil: A Family Tradition of Exceptional Quality

For a taste of Crete's rich heritage and exceptional quality, look no further than Patima Cretan extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). Produced by the Aleksakis family in the Apokoronas region, Patima EVOO is a culmination of generations of farming expertise and a deep respect for traditional methods.

Early Harvest for Peak Flavor and Health Benefits:

Unlike many EVOOs, Patima's olives are harvested earlier in the season. This meticulous timing ensures the olives capture a higher concentration of beneficial antioxidants and a fresher, more flavorful profile. This practice aligns perfectly with the principles of the Cretan Mediterranean diet, known for its focus on fresh, high-quality ingredients.

Generations of Expertise Cultivate a PDO-Certified Product:

The Aleksakis family's rich history of farming and shepherding is evident in every bottle of Patima EVOO. Their dedication to traditional methods and sustainable practices is further emphasized by the olive groves' location within the European Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) region of Apokoronas. This prestigious certification guarantees the authenticity and exceptional quality of Patima EVOO.

Unique Terroir Shapes a Distinctive Flavor Profile:

The unique ecosystem surrounding the Aleksakis family's olive groves plays a significant role in shaping the character of Patima EVOO. Nestled near the pristine Lake Kournas and nourished by the mineral-rich White Mountains, the area boasts a diverse microclimate and fertile soil. This combination of factors contributes to the distinct and complex flavor profile of Patima's EVOO, a characteristic unique to the Aleksakis family's land.
