From the time that Ariadne
used a ball of thread to save Theseus
from the Minotaur’s maze
very little has changed
in the way we produce
our olive oil in Crete
WHO WE ARE
We are a group of young farmers who follow the tradition of our ancestors; we have devoted our lives to cultivating, harvesting and producing some of the world’s finest Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Our produce is obtained from a careful selection of manually picked untreated olives and we only use mechanical cold pressed methods of extraction.
Today, our history is part of our strength, bringing together tradition, experience and passion in every single step of the process to make one the world’s highest quality Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
WE BELIEVE IN OUR COMMITMENT TO PASS ON FROM GENERATION
TO GENERATION, ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY FARMING METHODS
THAT PRESERVE AND PROTECT OUR PLANET AND ITS RESOURCES…
