the story

Mani.1894.

There were all began. My great grandparents Nikolas and Kanella inherited 2.350 olive trees. They raised them just like their children with the same care and affection… Now, 130 years later we preserve these values untreated. We keep on cultivating with love and respect, appreciating the gifts that our Olive trees give us generously.
A bottle with a picture that keeps all the history of our family, our trees alive, trees that are not only memories of the past but also tools of inspiration for the future. This is what made us earn “Mani Gaea”. This is why we invite you to follow the path and taste our fresh olive juice.

the path of your olive oil

The Journey of Mani Gaea Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil begins at the end of October. We still pick our olives by hand just like our grandparents used to do, seeing that neither the fruit nor the tree is damaged.We use only linen sacks and take our fruit to the oil press the same day of its harvest to assure that it keeps all its benefits until further procedure. We exclusively use the cold extraction method (below 26oC) to make sure that the nutritional values as well as the taste and flavour properties of the fruit are transferred into the oil pulp.
 
We put MANI GAEA olive oil into a stainless steel tank to preserve its top quality. Finally, we are bottling it in numbered bottles, only on demand.
