The Governor Olive Oil Tours


Location: Agios Matheos   

Olive oil is the basis of the traditional Greek cuisine, which, more than any other, incorporates and showcases the beneficial elements of the Mediterranean diet. In Corfu, the Dafnis family has embraced the blessed olive tree and manages to proudly offer an olive oil that enthuses, while, as of this year, they plan to open their estate to those interested -especially tourists- and organize guided tours.

With a tradition to olive production that reaches back almost three generations, the Dafnis established “The Governor”, a family-run company that aims at producing olive oil of supreme quality, taste and nutritional value that has received critical acclaim. The content of polyphenols in their olive oil is significantly higher than the usual, indicating a product of unique characteristics and dietary significance, that can elevate your cooking and ameliorate your well-being.

The olive oil is produced by the renowned “Lianolia” olive tree variety, which is mainly found in the Ionian region. The heavy rainfall winters and high humidity summers that characterize the micro-climate of Corfu are ideal, as they allow this special variety to deliver fruits of supreme quality. The cared, tidy groves of “The Governor” are situated in Agios Matheos village, on Mount Gamillios and include more than 1000 trees -many of which are estimated to exist for more than 5 centuries- and are handled with great respect, as well as a traditional mill.
