The Phaestos olive groves, at the valley of Messara in Crete, Greece are a living myth: that is where our home is, a blessed ancient land where man never ceased to cultivate the olive tree and produce olive oil, the essential food of our people over the centuries.
Olive oil condiment with various herbs, fruit and vegetables
Our family have been cultivating and producing olive oil for more than a century with an enduring enthusiasm and a deep-rooted sense of care and respect for the olive tree and its fruit. This century-long relation with the olive tree and olive oil has gifted us with knowledge and skills and a deep understanding that passed naturally from our grandfathers to the grandchildren. Grandson Antonis Nikitakis and his wife Yanna Svyrinakis are now in charge and they have plans: they want to make their precious products available to international consumers.
