Salvation extra virgin olive oil is amongst the premium Greek olive oil varieties and is exclusively produced by Mirtoelia or Mourtoelia. This is an ancient, yet not very common, Greek olive variety known for its unique nutritional value. It has been traditionally cultivated in the region of Laconia (Lakonia) and produces high quality extra virgin olive oil of Protected Geographical Indication.
Salvation virgin olive oil is harvested entirely from the 1,800 olive trees grown in our family-owned estate, “Tryzea”. The rare micro-biosystem within “Tryzea” gives Salvation olive oil its unique identity and refined taste. The location, orientation, micro-climate and the well-tended olive groves contribute to the balanced flavor of our Mediterranean extra virgin olive oil.
The estate is located on the edge of the village of Metamorfosi, before the olive grove plains, on the foothills of Parnon at an altitude of 120 metres. It rests on a South-facing slope, at the point where two mountains meet. The grove’s microclimate is truly noteworthy. The currents formed within the valley air out the entire estate, continuously and evenly, protecting the olive trees from diseases commonly spread in the lowlands as a result of humidity and frost. Due to the high altitude of the slope, the temperature is higher in the winter, as cold air accumulates in the lowest parts of the valley, while in the summer the temperature rises. Finally, the rocky ground of the “Tryzea” estate ensures it drains well.
We use advanced oil-extraction processes to produce one of the most luscious Greek olive oil varieties. Find out about our harvesting and oil extraction methods.
