Astakos Olives & The ‘Olive Journey’
Since I was a child I have felt a strong bond with the olive tree. Then in my adult years I realized that
the Olive tree has always been a part of my inner self, an integral part of my life purpose.
In both, days of joy and days of sadness, I could walk for hours in the olive groves, being lost in the beauty and the serenity of the centennial olive trees.
However It was not until a few years ago that I felt a strong call from nature to share with people my
passion about olives, especially the ones coming from the place I was born, a picturesque fish village in
the Ionian sea at the 21 longitude, named Astakos.
Astakos is a hidden paradise, not just for its natural beauty but for all the unique gastronomic treasures that come from the fertile soil and grown with the loving care of the locals.
Through the years my passion about olives became a project that is now guided by a team of passionate people, all sharing the same values about Gastronomy. Today with deep respect for the terroir (Terra) our olives are cultivated and with immense love for the place where we were born ( 21 Astakos), we all share with the Food Lovers in Greece and the World a unique gastronomic journey.
