Our olive oil – A family story
Our promise on quality
If it's good enough for our table, you can be sure it's good enough for your's.
Our olives trees are drought tolerant and located in foothills of the mountain Taygetos, Laconia of South Greece, an EU protected geographical area (PGI) which produces one of the best olive oils in the world and attested by the many winning international awards. Our olive trees are grown on terraced fields which have a southern exposure which allows for a better yield with limited olive disease.

Our primary trees are Koroneiki and it is the primary oil variety of our family which has well-recognized quality characteristics, very heavy fruit set, but very small fruit. Koroneiki oil is generally quite green in color, very fruity with an emphasis on herbal-green fruitiness, and it has medium bitterness and pungency. It has a long shelf life of two or more years.
Our Olives are hand-picked and selected from the harvest to ensure the finest quality. Harvest starts in November. The oil extraction process takes place immediately after harvest and it is cold press.
