The Kotsonis Family History.
4 generations dedicated to the production of olive oil
In a landscape where rolling hills meet the horizon in a verdant land of olive trees, the Kotsonis family 100 years ago envisioned the future colored in… olive green.
In the area once ruled by ancient Mycenae and famous Argos, 4 generations of the Kotsonis Estate make their own history: a history inspired by their own land.
The Kotsonis Estate groves started their course in the beginning of 1900 and soon the taste of the Estate olive oil became famous among consumers.
20 years later, the Kotsonis family, following advances in technology, built the first water driven mechanical olive oil press in the area which was considered as the most advanced of its era. This decision, as a result of the family’s love for the quality of their products, gave a new boost in the production and a brand name to the Estate. The family’s devotion to tradition and quality and their persistence in following technological advances, was once again confirmed in 1930, when the Kotsonis family decided to upgrade the olive oil press into hydroelectric. In the following decades the Estate was dedicated to the production of qualitative olive oil, gaining more and more fans for its exquisite taste.
In 2007, the Kotsonis Estate advanced once more, granting part of the oil groves to the production of organic farming, predicting the consumer trend for healthier products. Today, the Kotsonis family uses the most advanced methods of extraction and standardization in new facilities, insisting for 4 generations on doing what they know best: offer the land the care it deserves and get the best out of it.
