Description

Melas-Epidavros Olive Oil Domain was founded in 1994 by Evangelos Melas, son of a third-generation olive oil producer, an organic farmer with deep knowledge and extensive experience in the world of olive oil production.
The initial facilities were located in the town of Lygourio, near Epidavros, in the prefecture of Argolida in the Peloponnese. The company’s aim since the beginning of its commercial operations was the international market, with a steady philosophy based on the quality and the high organoleptic characteristics of its products.
Among the company’s first products commercialized was the extra virgin olive oil of the “Manaki” variety, a Protected Designation of Origin PDO “Ligourio Asklepios” of the Argolid prefecture since 1996, known in many countries for its unique quality characteristics and flavor. In 2008, the continuously-growing demand for the company’s products led to the establishment of new, modern facilities at the current location, including an olive press exclusively for producing organic olive oil as well as a second line for olive pressing of conventional olive oil, with vertical production and total control over the quality of production, storage, and bottling.
