It is such a priviliage to review this Estate Koroneiki Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Brothers Dino and Diamantis are the force behind the Lakoniko brand and products. I met them back in 2018 at the New York International Olive Oil Compeition and have loved their products ever since. Focused on family, a passion for tradition and an incredible commitment to quality, their flagship Koroneiki is far from an exception to this. It is a beautiful example of this classic Greek varietal.

Produced from 5,000 organically grown trees on their 4th generation family olive grove in Laconia, nestled in the southern Peloponnese. This oil is created through the marriage of love and ideal location. The ideal Mediterranean climate, the trees soak up the hot summer sun and salty sea breezes, producing plump olives filled with incredibly high Omega 9 content. The hand-picked olives undergo a fully mechanical extraction less than 4 hours from picking, producing an incredible stable oil. The antioxidant content of this Koroneiki is 580mg/l!

The oil is bright and green and packed with green fruit notes of green apple, unripe banana, arugula, and fresh cut grass. The lingering peppery finish ensures the oil sits beautifully in the mouth, offering a truly harmonious taste profile.

My favourite use for this Koroneiki is roasted vegetables, because of the high stability, it’s perfect for cooking with. The tasting notes pair perfect with sweet potato, yam, squash, carrots, and beets. Use in roasted vegetables salads, with winter greens or spinach, pepitas and a tahini dressing. The oils versatility is the perfect addition to any vegetable side dish, creamy rich dressing or sauce. It also livens up the flavour in any salad dressing. Here are some delicious recipes to use with this oil.

To learn more about the Lakoniko family, and where to purchase their oil, head to Oakmont Olive Oil Company, or one of their many retail locations.
