Perfect storage conditions are essential for the protection of olive oil from its worse enemies: light, heat and air oxygen, that can cause irreparable damage to the chemical and sensory characteristics of even the finest extra virgin oil.
Traditionally ad hoc baked-clay vases were used for storage. Huge such containers were found in palaces of the ancient East. In the Mycenean and Cretan palaces of Greece, warehouses with hundreds of great vases were discovered which could hold hundreds of kilograms of oil.
Throughout all the Mediterranean area after the Middle Ages, these containers were supplied to the oil-producing areas by specialized potters in localities that became famous for their production.
In more recent centuries these vessels were replaced by stone reservoirs, placed underground and protected from light and sudden changes in temperature. Later, the stone finish was replaced by glazed ceramic tiles that allowed greater cleanliness and better conservation.
