With about 180 inhabitants, the village of Martha stands at a height of 400 metres above sea level and is situated 45 km south of Crete’s capital, Heraklion. Ageras Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes from 800 trees spread over family-owned land of 20 hectares around the village. The southern salty winds coat, nourish and enrich the olives with fresh Mediterranean salt, which leads to the optimal oil extraction circumstances and create an olive oil ideal for pairing with fish and pasta dishes, according to olive oil sommelier Charalambos Papadimitriou.
