  • Flavor

    Elegant and complex. I boast a rich, grassy nose with hints of fresh herbs, and a round, buttery, peppery finish. I bring out the flavors of vegetables and salads and am amazing when braising meats and hearty dishes.

  • Terroir

    The unique Athenoelia olive trees growing on one of the tallest and historic mountains in Greece produce a flavor like no other. These trees are beautiful and truly ancient, with some over a 1000 years old. They grow in the hillside rocks and must be harvested carefully by hand. Being among such majestic trees with their gnarled trunks and bountiful branches was something that touched our soul.

The Source & History of Kerós

Olive trees in Vordonia are among the oldest in the world, dating centuries and even millenia. Gianni's family has lived in this quaint village on the outskirts of Sparta on Mount Taygetos for many generations. They harvest an ancient Athenian varietal in the arid rock, which creates truly elegant flavors and promotes good health. The oil from this tiny village is renowned by the locals.
