Aniko olive trees have been growing there for over 150 years, among local herbs, thyme and sage, in our traditional series of terraces among stone walls. Some wild trees are even 500 years old.It’s now time for you to choose one of the 190 olive trees and get the most out of this unique experience.

the importance of
Peerless Taste in a bottle
end of September
From late September when the harvesting season starts, your olives- still green- are slowly and carefully handpicked. This process is more time-consuming and costly than mechanical harvesting, however it enables us to select the best fruit. Your handpicked olives are not damaged (falling on the ground, hit by a machine or impaired by insects) they are not mixed with soil or grass and your olive tree is unharmed. Harvesting intact fruit is a key step for the production of the best olive oil. Your olives are taken to the olive press the same day so that oil extraction can begin. About 15kg of olives are needed to produce one liter of Koroneiki olive oil.
Micro Oil Mill
Your olives are taken to our micro mill on the same day they are collected to minimize olive oxidation. The quality of the produced oil heavily depends on the time the olives will remain in the collection sacks. What makes the Aniko process remarkable is the use of a micro olive mill enabling us to extract the oil tree by tree. No unwanted mixing with the olives of a different tree. Only uniqueness. Traditional mills require a minimum of 500 kilos of olives to start producing oil. Aniko micro mill is able to start producing oil with just 45 kilos of olives thus enabling us to extract your oil from your tree only. Moreover, the olives do not go through heat processing, to increase the quantity produced. We aim at the best quality olive oil safeguarding its fragrant aromas and flavors as well as its healthful qualities.
IN YOUR BOTTLEs
Immediately (in 24 hours)
Following the extraction in our micro olive mill, your olive oil is filtered and packaged within 24 hours. We are strict about this procedure since we want to avoid olive oil oxidation due to external factors such as oxygen availability and light. Glass is ideal for packaging and preserving olive oil. Moreover, Aniko dark glass bottles prevent the olive oil oxidation.
ΑΤ YOUR TABLE
Shipping will begin November onwards depending on harvesting season. Delivery time depends on the destination country but we expect it between December and February. You will receive a package containing 6 extra virgin olive oil bottles of 500ml each from your olive tree. Moreover, you will receive a TUV Certification guaranteeing that your olive oil is produced exclusively from your tree as well as a chemical analysis of your olive oil stating all its unique characteristics.
