The olives are so many and so beautiful, they are ripe at the right point and, thanks to the rains last month, their pulp is soft and swollen.
A new harvesting season starts in middle of November. We are very excited and look forward soon to taste the New Superior Organic Olive Oil Argali!

In a few words about Argali Organic Olive Oil
Giovanni Bianchi comments:
Thank you for giving us a little of your time. We are going to show you who we are, what we do and our product : organic olive-oil.
Few years ago we coincidentally get involved with the Greece and strongly linked to his history, natural beauties and obviously, we immediately loved one of his best product: the olive’s oil.
We strongly believe in an full organic approach to food production, against the money profit ideal on which is founded the actually way to make business. We are trying to adapt the protection of natural resources, the respect of nature, a not invasive and unnaturally way of production with our desire to offer you our final product.
What we do
Our work is in progress, since we are a young company, our target is not the profit but instead the great chance to share with you our superior organic olive oil. We got almost 200 olive trees in Gargaliani. In our olive grove no fertilizers, pesticides or weed killers are used whatsoever.
Since 2007 we are certified BioHellas, the most important greek “Inspection and Certification body for organic products”. The soil is fertilized with olive leaves retrieved from the olive mill and the olive trees are not watered.
The olive trees of the Koroneiki variety are perfectly adapted to the dry climate and rocky terrain. The fruits are very small, black and green and are very dense clusters on the branches. While the usual olive oil yield is approximately 10 liters per tree, in our cultivation the trees produce only 2 to 5 liters of the purest green extra virgin olive oil. We deliberately sacrifice quantity to produce the best quality oil with a very light ecological footprint.
Harvest time is in November and December and the olives are pressed within 12 hours of harvesting to ensure very low acidity. Pressing takes place at 27 degrees Celsius so that the oil maintains its aroma and a large amount of polyphenols (natural antioxidants).
Where we are
Our olive grove is in Gargaliani, Messenia. Gargaliani is a small town in the west Peloponnese, situated on a small rising that overlooks a vast valley of olives.
This beautiful view of green olive groves contrasts with the deep blue of the sea, and in the background there is the picturesque island of Proti. This is the area where Nestor, King of Pilo and one of the Argonauts reigned, and to whom Telemaco turned, when he was searching for his father Ulysses, after the Trojan War.
For anyone looking for a healthy food and unique taste. Our Organic Olive Oil is ARGALI is ready for you!
