Produced near Crete, Koronekes boutique olive oil is a knock out. Nicely balanced, fruity, and fresh, its taste and texture slowly envelopes your mouth, coating your tongue smoothly, richly, and without a hint of greasiness.

Distinct green apple, artichoke, and herb notes hit first, and then softly mellow out, giving way to a rounded more earthy flavor. Drizzled lovingly over creamy risotto, or on simple grilled fish or salad, Koronekes’ is an absolute find. So too is the bottle. Its latest packaging is in the oh-so-en-vogue heavy perfume-bottle-esc flasks. It’s solid, impressive, and a stand out on your table — just like the oil itself.
