GEVOO is our team’s term for Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Our oil comes from a single-estate olive grove in Greece, located in Lechania, a village in the West Peloponnese region. The grove lies close to the Ionian Sea at a certain height above sea level that provides a unique microclimate for premium quality extra virgin olive oil. Visit our roots here.
The olive fruit has been integral to the lives of Grecians since ancient times. Known as an emblem of knowledge, wisdom, abundance, health, power, and beauty - olives have been the center of legends, traditions, and religious practices tracing back 4,000+ years. Olive oil was used to anoint kings and athletes, as a main source of light fuel, and as a beauty staple in which people bathed in for its natural healing powers.
To be deemed “extra virgin”, olive oil must have 55 mg/kg polyphenol content, and less than .8% acidity. We’re proud to relay that our oil never contains less than 300 mg/kg of polyphenol (most of the time, it’s over 400), and our acidity is one of the lowest you can find, at .17%. That’s 4.7x less than the limit. You read that right - that’s the power of sourcing from a single-estate. Since each harvest is unique, these quantities will naturally vary ever-so-slightly.
