In the year 2000, Greek TV and film director Manousos Manousakis and his family decided to revive a unique olive grove at the foot of Mount Parnonas in the historic village of Sellasia near Sparta in the Laconian Peloponnese. For the Manousakis family, organic sustainable agriculture is both a necessary and realistic alternative to chemical-intensive farming. They understand thoroughly that excessive pesticide use, soil degradation and genetic homogenization of crops threaten the biodiversity of the countryside, the water we drink and the quality of our food. After years of painstaking devotion, their products have reached the peak of quality they were seeking, and have begun to share this truly special olive oil with all those wishing to experience the authentic flavors of the Peloponnese.
