“KLONARI” VARIETY

An exquisite variety of olive tree

Under the sky of Attica, on the edge of Mount Hymettus, grows one of the rarest and finest olive tree varieties, the “Klonari” variety. A small family of olive trees that has been cultivated by local growers for centuries now, almost in secret, offering wonderful golden fruits of intense deep color.

The creation of this extra virgin olive oil is done with absolute care and traditional methods that are passed down from family to family and from generation to generation.

It’s time to discover a rare olive oil that will pleasantly surprise you!

THE PLACE

Paiania

Paiania is located 17 km east of Athens, on the edge of Mount Hymettus, at an altitude of 200 meters. It is one of the most important birthplaces, as prominent personalities of Ancient Greece came from there, the leading politician and orator Demosthenes being one of them (4th century BC).

The dry Mediterranean climate of the region sets an ideal condition for the development of olive groves and vineyards, where, from the ancient times on, the inhabitants developed by creating an area with a great tradition in the production of excellent agricultural products.

The inhabitants of the area settled here thousands of years ago and were an important support for Athens. The art of nature cultivation, but also the tradition in local government and politics are characteristics that have helped in its continuous development until today.

A visit to modern Paiania can be a fascinating experience: the “Koutouki” Stalactite Cave, the EUARCE European Art Center, the Vorre Museum of Art and even a walk on Mount Hymettus, one of the densest orchid farms in Europe.

In this place, the art of cultivating nature and soul is an extension of the Paianian spirit and this can be seen both in their recorded history and in their rare oil or intoxicating wine.
