Address: Sparta, Greece
About Us / Olea Estates History: Olea olive oil and olives are produced by the Chronis family since 1856 in our own olive orchards in the valley of Sparta, Greece.After the Greek revolution of 1821 and the liberation from the Ottoman occupation, the land was sold to the Greek people by the leaders (captains) of the revolution. It was that time, in 1856, when Nicholas Chronis, purchased a piece of land, next to the river Evrotas that runs through the valley of Sparta. He planted a few hundred olive trees and patiently cultivated them to support his family. He passed them on to his son, George, who passed them on to his son Nicholas and four generations later the Chronis family are proud to make the olive oil from these trees available to everyone.We continue to produce olives and extract our olive oil from the same trees, in the same way, with the same care for over 150 years. We invite you to experience Olea straight from the heart of Sparta and to taste the difference for yourself.Please visit our website for more info.
