Each season a selection of olives is harvested in early November just before the olives begin to ripen. This unique monocultivar, organic extra virgin olive oil is extracted from Koutsourelia olives grown in Corinth, Greece. Sensitive to the health and nutritional high standards of consumers, the olives are picked by hand and cold extracted to preserve the beneficial organic substances of the olive oil. The resulting oil is unflitered, woderfully well-balanced and incredibly smooth and fruity, perfect to be served with fresh garden salads or on freshly toasted bread with a punch of oregano and a squeeze of lemon.

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.
