Olive groves on gently sloping hills in front of mists and mountains

Artemisia Estates was established in 2014 to fulfill our dream of creating a world class extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) in the birthplace of European olive oil, Crete. We focus on making the finest EVOO for a world that has yet to fully appreciate Greek and Cretan oils. Our goal is to be part of the movement that reveals this Greek treasure to mankind.

We call our extra virgin olive oil “Song of Odysseus,” a name chosen to evoke the ancient Greek journey of Homer’s epic hero as he sought to find his way home. Inspired by the Odyssey, our goal is to help everyone find their way to the home of the world’s best olive oil, Greece.

With headquarters just a dozen kilometers from the ancient Minoan palace of Knossos, we extract our olive oil from carefully selected fruit from our own Cretan groves the same day the olives are harvested. Our olive groves are maintained with love and care throughout the year, following time tested ways of bringing ancient techniques to the modern world. Song of Odysseus is a golden Greek treasure for the senses.
