Yet for Daniolo, it is the production of the fruit itself that is the character of an olive oil. Like all young things, character is developed from very early on. Our production process begins before our trees begin to bear their season’s fruit; the care and nurturing of the soil, the pruning and grooming of the trees themselves. Stories say that the older caretakers of the land would play Greek folk music in the fields for the trees to listen and sway to.
Our production method is a cycle of love, patience, and respect; from the people’s heart and soul in caring for the land and orchard, to the heart and soul of yes a production plant.
Olive oil is our culture and our tradition and sharing is a gift we learned from our history and our forefathers; the sharing of democracy, of philosophy, of poetry and language, of hospitality.
So that summer, summer 2012, Capacious Enterprises was founded. Constantine Daniolos, the founder of the company and owner of Daniolo Olive Oil, took the knowledge he had gained growing up amongst olive groves and harvesting cycles, and decided that the rich pungent oil his orchards produced for until now-family, friends and neighbors- was going to be bottled and shared with the world.
Along with his small company of friends sharing the same vision, he launched his journey to bottle and market their own green liquid gold. Well aware of the many olive oils produced within their own country as well as other Mediterranean terrains, they were and remain undaunted to fulfill that starry nights dream.
Their drive is fueled by their desire not to compete-but to share the experience of uncapping a bottle of Daniolo revealing the fruity aroma that carrys with it a promise for what lies within. A promise for ones’ own starry Aegean night. A promise easily quenched and delivered by the elegant bottles intoxicating pungent contents, Daniolo Organic PDO N. Mylopotamos evoo.
“What can be more satisfying than the drunkeness of the Aegean sea and sun, a peasants loaf of bread and a bowl of beautiful olive oil.” (unknown poet)
