A ship named Eunoia sailed through the calm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The favourable westerly winds escorted the boat, gently, towards the north-western tip of the Peloponnese peninsula. On deck, the sailors gazed at the beautiful landscape in front of them: a mantle of sturdy olive trees stood out on the hills surrounding the village, the sun shone energizing their fruits and the sea sprinkled the trees, aromatizing them with its fresh fragrance.
A growing excitement took over the crew at the sighting of the motherland, after months of travelling at sea. They had sailed to distant lands on the other side of the Mediterranean Sea, with Eunoia loaded with amphorae filled with the greatest gift the goddess Athena had ever given to mankind: a golden liquid (as Homer had called it) with an exquisite taste and many beneficial properties for health, olive oil.
At last, Eunoia docked. Kyllini was the most important port in the area and the main access to the capital Elis and to Olimpia, birthplace of the Olympic Games. The family of traders threw their arms around their relatives. Suddenly, everybody kept silent when, from among the crowd, the family old man came forward with a ceramic cup in his hands, offering it to one of the sailors, his son:
-“It is from the first harvest of the year, freshly pressed”.
-“Delicious! Fresh and intense, with a sea aftertaste!
The man looked proudly at Eunoia, the ship that allowed his family to export their precious olive oil across the Mediterranean. A smile crossed his face as he savoured the spicy aftertaste of their special olive oil.
Many centuries later, in 1987, favoured by this blessed territory full of history, our family was inspired to grow olive trees with the same respect and devotion as their ancestors. We, the last generation, aim to honour our land and culture, by sharing this treasure with the rest of the world, offering a delicious and unique olive oil that sailed back to us through history.
Mediterranean nations have been making olive oil for thousands of years, passing down knowledge of the craft from generation to generation. It is not only a key ingredient of our daily diet but also an integral part of our tradition, the aromas and flavors of our life.
Our family have been cultivating olives and producing premium extra virgin olive oil for 50 years. Our vision and commitment is to guarantee an exquisite flavor and high quality in our olive oil.
We are a team of highly motivated people who cares about our land and the history that contains, we believe in preserving our tradition spreading the EVOO culture and providing exceptional products and service.
Making Olive Oil Sustainable
Our primary goal is to reduce our footprint in the environment as much as possible by using the latest technology and respecting the European quality standards.
Enhancing and highlighting the sustainability of olive farming are important not only for the environment but also for the future of the olive oil industry.
Our ambition is to create an environmentally friendly olive oil of the highest quality.
Our olive oil is extracted shortly after the harvest using the cold pressing method and it is then stored in stainless steel tanks and kept in a cool, dark place under controlled temperature so that all its healthy polyphenols, antioxidants, and vitamins as well as its unique taste and flavour are preserved.
The nutritional elements found in abundance in the soil of our region along with the sea breeze caressing our olive trees and the early-harvest method result in our exceptional-quality olive oil. Every step of the production is thoroughly tested, and the packaging of the final product is conducted in accordance with the latest marketing standards.
