Family Olive Oil Tradition:
Our family's olive groves are in the picturesque villages of Omala and Maleme, Chania. Our region's most abundant olive variety is Koroneiki, which produces the best quality, fruity, and aromatic olive oil. Our olive trees, some dating back to the 1800s, are cultivated with deep respect for the soil and environment. This ensures that our olive oil is an actual "medicine" for health and longevity.

The olive oil is harvested using oil machines designed to protect the trees and maintain the quality of the fruit. This careful process maximizes the oil's beneficial properties, resulting in extra virgin olive oil that is second to none. The rich Cretan diet, abundant in olive oil, is known for its significant health benefits and role in promoting longevity.
