Who we are

Our story

Elies Olive press is a 3rd generation family business that has been active in the production of olive oil since 1976.

We are located in the location of Elies of Mountainous Zakynthos, near the famous beach of Navagio. Our area, Elies, got its name from the hundreds of ancient olive trees aged from 1,000 to 3,000 years that adorn the surrounding area of our olivepress, in a Nature of rare beauty.

Elies Premium is a 100% extra virgin olive oil of Koroneiko variety which is collected and produced by small producers, our villagers, with respect for them and with an excess of love for the natural wealth of our place.

The rich aroma and its unique taste are due to the ideal geographical location of our region, the rocky soil, the sea that is around and finally the temperate climate of our place with the ideal conditions of temperature and humidity.

These are the basic conditions that keep the hundreds of ancient olive trees alive.

These trees and the hard work of our fellow villagers, inspire us to continue to produce a top quality olive oil with respect to Mother Earth.
As a 3rd generation of owners, we opened the olive press to visitors during the summer, turning it into an interactive museum that connects the tradition of the place with the modern age.

Our guests have the opportunity to tour the facilities of the olive press , to learn how to harvest olives and how to produce olive oil and to enjoy a journey of tasting and quality in the unique world of Elies Premium olive oil.

We saw the street signs for the Elies Olive Press and were SO HAPPY we stopped in. It's a small operation with absolutely delicious olive oil and the most wonderful hostess, Marinetta. She was so welcoming and informative and she gave us recommendations of places to eat and shop in the area. The olive oil is well priced and I bought 6 bottles to bring home to the US. I've been eating it every day since we returned home as it is truly delicious. Take 15 minutes to stop here, you'll learn about olive oil, taste free samples and see their 3000 year old trees! Highly recommend!

Elies Olive press is a must for people who love good flavours. It is a small family business with a great variety of creative products made with olives. We especially liked the Olive oil with lemon and the honey with strawberry and cocao. I also bought the beeswax with olive oil to put on a small wound. I only had to rub it in for 3 days and then it was healed. Definitly something to keep in your first aid kit. Prices are very reasonable for the quality you get. Thus if you want to buy something of the Greek olives that are on the island please buy it at Elies and not those awful Olive oils in the tourist shops. Do yourself that favour at least.

By coincidence we stopped on our way at the Elies Olive Press. What a warm welcome we got, to taste the different olive oils, home made red wine (very good!!!) and other lovely products. A video shows how the oil making is done. The machinery in the background is impressive. Don't forget to take a look at the olive trees around the building, some are more than 2000 years old! Warmly recommended, thank you Giannis and Marinetta!A video shows how the oil making is done. The machinery in the background is impressive.
