For over 100 years, the Dafnis Family, produces olive oil on the island of Corfu, carefully tending the centenarian “lianolia” variety. The olive oil is processed with low temperatures at the family’s mill based in the historical village of Aghios Mathaios, using the gentlest methods.
The olive oil was inspired by a strong character, the first governor of independent Greece, Count Ioannis Capodistrias (1776 – 1831).
The youngest generation of the family, Spyros & George created their own Oleoculture and tradition by starting a revolution on the island’s olive oil production practices. This is how the governor was born, the first single variety from ancient “lianolia” of Corfu.
