HISTORY FROM GOLD BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Arcadia has been known since ancient times for the quality of the olive trees and specifically for the Koroneiki variety. This blessed place has roots with olives everywhere! The inhabitants of the area undertake the arduous work of harvesting the fruits not only for livelihood reasons. It is more a part of their life, of preserving their ancestral tradition and Arcadian culture. The whole family participates in the olive picking from October every year until February. This is the period that is considered the best to collect the best quality olive oil, justifying the world fame it has gained.
More specifically, Astros of Kynouria is a coastal settlement with picturesque streets and traditional houses. It got its name from the star-shaped hill that dominated the harbor. In addition, it claims its place on the oleographic map as one of the most historic olive oil production areas.
Where the mountains meet the blue of the sea and the green of the olive groves, new units for the production, collection and standardization of olive oil begin to operate. Their goal is to offer to the ubiquitous lovers of olive oil, the purely bitter taste, the smell of an olive tree and the golden color that they eagerly seek in each of their tastings.
