Phenolic Content: 2018 harvest numbers coming after Aristoleo Awards
By the shores of Lake Volvi, 60 km from the city of Thessaloniki in Northern Greece, lies the Volvi Estate wild olive farm. At 4,000,000 sq.m. (400 ha) and with around 100,000 olive trees, it is the single biggest private wild olive tree farm in the country.
Wild olive trees (Olea Europaea sylvestris) have been growing on the estate for centuries, unaffected by any human intervention, just with the protection of the mild microclimate of the lake. Wild olives grow and bear fruits completely unaided, in the most natural of processes, relying only on the sun and the rain. Today there are around 90,000 wild olive trees on the estate together with approximately 10,000 domesticated olive trees (Olea Europaea), and produce respectively wild olive oil, one of Greek nature’s superfoods, and extra virgin olive oil (EVOO).
