Terra Medi Greek Olive Oil Review

Terra Medi Greek Olive Oil was founded by John Stavros, Apostolos Paralikas, Peter Malo and Michael Besso.  After noticing a sharp rise in olive oil demand in the U.S. they decided to create a company to import a variety of premium greek food products into the U.S.  This company is Greek Farms International and the brand is Terra Medi.  They felt that Greek olive oils, and other products, were far superior to many of the products being offered in the U.S. at that time. They wanted to offer the opportunity for Americans to appreciate that quality. The Terra Medi brand stands for  bringing 100% natural products to American consumers.  Another similar brand with an extensive range of products, is The Olive Orchard.

Terra Medi Extra Virgin Olive Oil is pressed from Koroneiki olives from the Peloponnesian peninsula in Greece. The olives are hand harvested and cold pressed. It is a very smooth buttery olive oil with a mixed herb flavor and subtle peppery aftertaste.  If you are fairly new to discovering the wonders of greek olive oil, or have yet to discover them, then this a great place to start.  When you open the bottle you will notice immediately the fresh grassy and rich herb smell that is so lovely different to the many inferior olive oils on supermarket shelves. It has a vibrant liquid gold color and is superb both as a bread dip and for cooking.
