Family Tradition

I am Michael Theodore Sideris and I oversee our Athenolia groves, harvest and oil production. My fascination with our unique oil began as a five year old accompanying my parents, Theodore and Angeliki, to our olive groves. My father would place me on the plow for added weight.

He would preach Just maintain what was left for us, our ancestors did the hard work of finding perfection, if you want the same  olive to oil pressing ratio, flavor, color and aroma every year then dont change a thing”.  My father instilled in me the importance of Terroir-driven Olive Oil. He showed me how each fields location only a few hundred yards apart have different olive to oil yields, color, aroma and flavor. I listened, learned and adopted my fathers vision and made it my own.
