Our olive varieties are Greek, Italian and Spanish because, at heart, we are not EVOO nationalists, but EVOO perfectionists.
By origin we are part Greek and part Italian. The land we chose for our olive groves is in the hills above the seaside town of Ermioni in the Peloponesse, Greece.
Our vision is to create a world-leading olive oil estate that will produce a range of exceptional extra virgin olive oils with distinct organoleptic characteristics.
We will use
this platform to
educate both professionals and enthusiastic foodies,
advance the use of olive oil in gastronomy,
and push the limits of exceptional quality.
We respect nature and value the deep knowledge inherent in traditional and sustainable cultivation practices. We optimize our outcome with a state-of-the-art olive mill, where we can extract and bottle the best of nature without ever altering it and allow for complete traceability of every step of the process.
For us, the most important element of our success is the people who are involved in this project.
We have on board persons passionate about olive oil, with proven professional track records.
