Important reference points:
Walking the olive groves : All fine specimens of the Koroneiki olive tree variety, were planted in 1890, making them over a hundred years old. We encourage you to touch, feel and experience the groves where trees are planted far apart. You will see our grove’s fully developed trees with olives containing the full range of nutrients and flavors drawing from the composition and quality of the soil. Our Estate has never employed intensive farming and harvesting methods. We believe in supporting the land as a natural botanical garden where local self-sowing flora thrive. The estate is home to the sight and smells of wild flowers blooming there every season. You will enjoy your stroll through the grove!
From the Olive groves to the Mill : Our olives are harvested entirely by the gentlest methods to minimize damage to the delicate fruit. The olives fall on to special protective nets, are transferred into sacks woven out of natural material, and taken to the extraction press daily. While the essence of our techniques remain profoundly traditional the pressing stage benefits from the precision of our state of the art equipment. We aim to maximize purity and quality over quantity. Our olive oil far surpasses the requirements of it’s category and we believe it is “Beyond Extra Virgin Olive Oil,” as we like to boast.
Live the unique tasting experience : The highlight of “Our Olive Tour and Tasting” experience, includes tasting different varieties of olives and olive oil accompanied by authentic Greek bread, learning how to taste olive oil, and becoming an expert at choosing the right olive oil when you are done. Join us to enjoy and share our passion for olives and olive oil!
