Our oil is not blended, bleached or filtered.
It is the perfect oil over salads fish cheeses and fresh bread.
On our farm we grow only the Koroneiki variety of olive. This type of tree produces an oil that is golden green in colour and the oil has a fresh fruity aroma, and rich lingering peppery taste. In Greece we call this type of oil ‘agourelaio’.
Our oil has a life of 18 months after harvest. It should be kept in a dark cool place in an airtight container.

Our methods are simple and traditional.
The harvest takes place just as the olives are reaching their full ripeness. Generally this is between October and December depending on the weather. Local farmers and friends come to help us. We hit the branches with long staffs so that the olives will fall onto the large cloths spread beneath the tree.
The olives are then collected and brought immediately to the local oil mill. Here the olives are pressed at a low temperature to produce extra virgin oil. This is then shipped directly to Ireland and bottled here for you in Dalkey Co Dublin.
Our small farm is in Messologhi beside the sea on the western side of the Greek mainland. It has been in our family for four generations. It is a small simple and rustic grove of 220 olives trees.
The humid climate and rich soil makes it ideal for growing olive trees.
We do not use chemicals on our land, we leave it to nature !
