California estate Backyard EVOO 100% Koroneiki
RETAIL PRICE: $38; Members pay $29.50
Theo imported 500 Koroneiki trees directly from Crete and was the first commercial grower of this varietal in the USA. Lush, fruity beginnings are quickly followed by a gentle uprising of sage on your palate, echoing the terroir of her groves. Tiny olive fruit, big seed, beautiful oil. This is a must-have connoisseur bottle of EVOO at its finest! Theo calls it her "Backyard EVOO" because she has many of these prized trees at the Global Gardens 3-acre Farm Stand and tasting bar. Compare the CA Koroneiki to the actual Greek imported Koroneiki. Buy them both and taste the difference of the terroir; incomparable! It's like tasting Pinot Noir from Washington state and then tasting it from our region. Two amazing flavors, but totally different finishes. Fascinating!
