Olive groves and olive varieties
Our olives are hand-picked from the slopes of Mount Aenos on the beautiful island of Kefalonia. Our ancient groves on the edges of the national forest are approximately 800 metres above sea-level. The location of our olive groves between sea and mountain makes use of the ideal growing conditions for these olives.
Our oil is produced from local olive varieties primarily Thiako, Dopia and Koroni. This well-balanced superior Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a smooth combination of slightly sweet fruitiness with a gentle peppery finish. Other varieties found on the island are Manaki, Matolia, Korfolia.
Olive oil in Greece, which dates back 4000 years, is globally acknowledged for its purity and exceptional taste. More than 80% of the Greek olive oil is extra virgin, which is the top-ranked classification category in the world. This constitutes Greece as the world’s largest producer of extra virgin olive oil.
