The Olive Routes are the outcome of our love for the olive oil, the nature and the land of Messinia. Our olive dreams, found their home at Androusa Messinias, inside our olive oil Mill, at our olive grove, in the taste of our extra virgin olive oil. Therefore, we designed and provide to the “experience seekers” and visitors olive routes/tours so as to share our passion for olive tree, olive oil, nature, tradition, gastronomy

Olive oil extraction & Olive oil mill
At the beginning of 20th century (1904) the oil – press functioned only with two stones, which pressed the olives by the assistance of hourses. In 1955 the first mechanic- shatter and the first seperator were established. In 1977 the decantair was established which works in three phases. In 1993 the centrifugal of the 2 phases was established.
In 2003 the new contemporary factory was created. The oil- press is now ecological and produces the extra virgin olive oil by the ”koroneiki” olive variety- the best olives quality of the world.
Our factory spans over 4.000,00 m2 on a privately owned land, located 20kms from Kalamata, in the Southern part of mainland Greece. The total surface area of industrial space is 1500 m2, which includes offices, storage facilities and a production area.
