With a tradition that dates back to, at least, the 7th century BC, and ideal climatic conditions, Samothrace provides an ideal location for the cultivation of olive trees.
The family olive grove is located in the southern part of Samothrace, in the ancient olive growing region of the island.
Konstantinos Stavrianakis, an Environmental scientist with a Postgraduate degree in Ecology and George Stavrianakis, a biologist, run the Astraea family business and are both dedicated olive oil producers and traders.
Our view is that, the ecological methods of cultivation are directly expressed by traditional methods and the experience gathered from untold generations achieve the best quality possible by the least means available.
Our aim is to provide limited quantities of top quality olive products through the use of traditional means.
