For over 200 years the Dimitri Giannakos Family has been producing the finest unfiltered extra virgin olive oil at the foothills of Mt. Taygetos . Nestled along the backdrop of idyllic green slopes and steep fir-covered hills, the family’s 60-acre farm is located just 20 kilometers south of Sparta and 20 kilometers north of the southern Mediterranean coast.
A Family Legacy
Dimitri Extra Virgin Olive oil was founded by the current owner's grandfather in 1897. He went out into the surrounding countryside to dig up small wild olive trees that had grown from seeds dropped by birds or blown by the wind. Dimitri took care of them until they were old enough to graft and then planted them on our farm so that they could grow into producing olive trees. These types of wild olive trees are known to produce the best quality olive oil to this day.
