Explain the great meaning of early harvest olive oils and mentioned the best examples from Greece, Italy and Spain.

The representative of Greek olive oil was The Governor Olive Oil from idyllic greek island of Corfu by Dafnis Family. This olive oil made from lanolin variety a mainstay greek variety.

This fruit grows on fifth century in the family’s sloping olive grove, leading down to Adriatic Sea, and the unfiltered olive oil that came to fruition last fall has a verdant green colour and creamy, almost buttery texture and a velvety, slightly peppery taste.

A pour over salads or hot dishes elevates them to another caliber all together and the attractive bottle is a keepsake.
