The company was born in 2014 from the owners’ dream of creating a world class olive oil from the birthplace of European olive oil, Crete.
Our Estate of olive groves are maintained with love and care throughout the year and we try to follow the time tested ways of bringing ancient techniques to a modern world. Our philosophy is one of making the finest, complex tasting olive oil for a world that has yet to fully appreciate Greek and Cretan olive oil. It is our goal to be part of the movement to let the world know what treasure lives in the Greek olive oil.
We have made a low acid, delicate and complex tasting oil that is fit for the most demanding gourmet table or the simplest rural table. We have created a fine wine of olive oil that can be appreciated in its purest sense and in fine cooking.
We offer a 500 liter bottle that can easily sit as a decoration on your bar, but should be used in everyday cooking calling for a heart healthy oil.
The Song of Odysseus is a name meant to evoke the Greek journey of Homer’s hero as he sought to find his way home. Just like Odyssey, our journey is to help the world find its way back to the home of the worlds best olive oil: Greece.
Our company has its own grove of trees and also selects from only the finest olive trees of Crete to suit the taste of our creation.
Our product competes only against itself, for there is no oil exactly the same as ours. We do stand out against the mass market oils of Italian and Spanish brands that have cut corners and cheapened the quality for the sake of price and quantity. We do not mass produce and do not cut quality. We produce only the highest quality of olive oil for maximum taste and health benefits. That is why our oil is bottled in a beautiful container, to give respect to the tasty treasure within. Song of Odysseus is a golden Greek treasure for the senses.
