The Greek South. Messinia. An immense olive grove spreads across the province stretching to the sea, the only natural limit that seems to be able to contain its spread.
Filiatra, Trifylia. Our homeland. One of the most productive areas of premium extra virgin olive oil in Greece, with a very long tradition in olive cultivation and olive oil production. For this reason, it is included in the areas that produce the world famous Kalamata PDO olive oil.
Archetypon was born here, encompassing memories of our people’s collective experience. These memories are deeply engraved, with ancient root and sequence in time. The family, the picking of the olive tree, the preparation of the food, the family table, the hospitality. Depositions of memory that compose the palimpsest of Greek gastronomy.
“If you take Greece apart, in the end you will be left with an olive tree, a vineyard and a boat. Which means: with these three you can rebuild it”. Odysseus Elytis, Nobel Prize for Literature, 1979
In Archetypon we sealed the labor of our people and the artisanal knowledge of perennial experience, along with our passion for detail and high end quality.
Our centuries old, monovarietal, family estate of Koroneiki olive trees has always been organically cultivated, guided by our people’s love and endless respect of nature.
Early harvest and good practices at all stages of production ensures a well balanced extra virgin olive oil of very low acidity, excellent organoleptic characteristics and a high percentage of phenols for which it holds a health claim.
It is therefore a health-protective product aiming at the same time to satisfy the most demanding palates.
A premium extra virgin olive oil of limited production, characterized by a bright green color and a fruity fresh aroma with notes of cut grass, floral and fresh herbs, along with a well balanced medium tense pungent and bitter flavor.
Pure and unique, it travels one’s senses to the southern landscapes of Greece.
We are happy to invite you to the celebration of the new harvest.
Share a place at our family table. We welcome you!
