Description
The Olive Temple – Olympian Myth Kalamon Olives

The Karabelas family already counts four generations in the cultivation of olives and the production of extra virgin olive oil around Ancient Olympia. When Dimitris Karabelas, a third-generation descendant, and Franca Magrini, came together under a common vision, bringing the traditions of two Mediterranean countries on olive growing as well as their common love for this sacred place, they created in 2008 the company “Agriturismo Magna Grecia”. The company’s activities focus on the development of agritourism in the region and the promotion of the family’s products while at the same time being a point of reference in advancing the culture and tradition of Ancient Olympia which is a source of inspiration and admiration.

Taking the baton from their parents, Alexis and Francesco, inspired by the history and tradition of their homeland, with a focus on new technologies that allow full control of the production process and the final product, created The Olive Temple, a “temple” dedicated exclusively to the olive tree. With studies at the Polytechnic and Agricultural University respectively, they combined their cognitive subjects taking advantage of the privately owned olive groves of 180 acres, next to which they installed the modern two-phase olive mill from Tuscany, whose innovative functions ensure the organoleptic characteristics and high nutritional value of the olive oil while at the same time bearing the ISO and HACCP certification for the production, storage and standardization of the final product. Respect and harmonization with the natural environment with predominant characteristics the Mediterranean climate of the region, ideal for the cultivation of olives, the location of the olive groves at low altitudes and in fertile plains, between the rivers Alfeios and Kladeos, important for the irrigation of crops, dictate the selection of organic farming and the management and recycling of crop and production residues which are used as fertilizer and fuel to meet the energy needs of the facility.

The harvesting of the fruit which is intended for table use begins in mid-October, using methods that ensure the integrity of the fruit and their rapid concentration. After rigorous sorting, the fruit is washed and placed in fermentation barrels where the minimization of the bitterness of the fruit is done naturally (with no preservatives or other additives), following the traditional method of a three-month duration. The processing and storage of the fruit takes place in the facilities located within the estate, where all the required specifications are applied. The olives are then packaged in vacuum packs, thus preserving the particular characteristics of the product.
