OEL Zoe 250 ml – Art and OEL

29,90

OEL Zoe is our top class oli­ve oil as a limi­ted artist’s edition.

It is a very aro­ma­tic oli­ve oil, made from not qui­te ripe Koron­ei­ki olives.
The almost black bot­t­le made of vio­let glass by Miron and the gift box are prin­ted with a pain­ting by Dimi­tris Tza­mou­ra­nis.

Our OEL Zoe is sin­gle varie­ty (100% Koron­ei­ki), self-pro­du­ced, cer­ti­fied orga­nic, extra vir­gin. It comes from a gro­ve of trees that are several hund­red, in some cases even over a thousand years old.
In Greece, this so-cal­led ago­u­ré­leo (αγουρέλαιο) is a par­ti­cu­lar­ly valu­able and expen­si­ve speciality.

Exclusive olive oil - behind the scenes

The olives for OEL Zoe were harvested on 4 November 2021 On the same day, the precious harvest was the very first to go into oil mill for extraction after the summer break.
Our co-founders Amadeus Tzamouranis and Simone Artale personally accompanied the harvest, production and bottling of this special olive oil in Greece. A few days after extraction, they filled OEL Zoe into the dark bottles and sent them to Germany.

This exclusive olive oil has a particularly high content of polyphenols (extremely healthy antioxidants) and an intense aroma.
In any case, you should enjoy it raw and as pure as possible and dose it carefully.

The packaging

OEL Zoe is a gift limited edition in collaboration with the artist Dimitris Tzamouranis, the father of Amadeus Tzamouranis. For the bottle, he chose the painting Decameron, in which his youngest daughter Zoe (gr. "life") is at the centre. This painting celebrates the abundance and richness of life in the midst of nature. What could be more fitting for this oil?

Dimitris Tzamouranis was born in Kalamata in 1967, studied painting and printmaking at the University of Fine Arts in Thessaloniki and continued his studies at the Berlin University of the Arts from 1990. Since then he has devoted himself to figurative painting and today enjoys a considerable reputation. He is represented by the Michael Haas Gallery

Our Miron Violet Glass Bottles

We have deliberately filled Oel Zoe in bottles made of Miron violet glass. Violet glass shields the harmful rays of visible light very reliably.
This preserves the valuable ingredients for a long time.
In addition, Miron glass allows light of wavelengths between 380 and 420 nanometres (violet and UVA frequency) to penetrate 25%-45% and between 730 and 1050 nanometres (infrared frequency) to penetrate about 60%.
It is said that these rays are particularly beneficial for natural products.

Why OEL Zoe is a top class olive oil

Since this olive oil is extracted from unripe olives from very old trees, the yield is lower than usual. An early harvest means subordinating quantity to quality. And the age of the olive trees also plays a role. These trees only produce a few inflorescences, but then put their centuries of strength into the fruit. A feat of strength that is unparalleled and is reflected in the special intensity of flavour of this top-class olive oil.
