A TOP CLASS GREEK OLIVE OIL

ZOE is the limited artist edition of a very special olive oil from Greece.
This fine olive oil, so-called Agouréleo, is considered a particularly valuable and expensive specialty in Greece. It is obtained from Koroneiki olives that are not fully ripe.
The oil is green, slightly cloudy and very aromatic.

THE STORY OF THE TZAMOURANIS FAMILY

The story of ZOE begins with the Tzamouranis family in Kalamata in the Peloponnese. The joint work of father Dimitris Tzamouranis and son Amadeus Tzamouranis combines the knowledge and legacy of grandma Anthoula and grandfather Sotiris.

This olive oil is the quintessence of the Tzamouranis family.

Because ZOE combines the love of olive cultivation and good oil with the love of art.

Grandma Anthoula owns, maintains and manages the Tzamouranis family's olive groves. Through her, grandson Amadeus Tzamouranis discovered his love for olive oil at an early age. He eventually becomes the owner of an olive grove himself and founds OEL with friends.

Of course, Anthoula is an excellent cook and knows 1001 uses for her pure extra virgin olive oil.

Your treasure of traditional Greek recipes still needs to be explored.

Grandfather Soterios Tzamouranis passed on his love of art to his son Dimitris.

At first he only worked as a painter in his free time. After an exhibition in Piraeus, where he sold all the pictures, he gave up his mechanical engineering job and made art his career.

Until recently, he also provided the family with fresh fish, which he fished off the coast of Kalamata at night and in the early morning hours.

The hours alone on the sea at night shape his understanding of art and life.

Dimitris Tzamouranis was born in Kalamata in 1967. He initially studied painting and printmaking at the University of Fine Arts in Thessaloniki. From 1990 he continued his studies at the Berlin University of the Arts. Since then he has devoted himself to figurative painting.

Today he enjoys a considerable reputation and is represented by the Michael Haas Gallery in Berlin.

Dimitris Tzamouranis' painting Decameron now adorns the bottle and gift box from ZOE.

N/A! OI TZAMOURANIDES!

ZOE is pure (100% Koroneiki), self-produced, certified organic, extra virgin. The trees in ZOE's grove are several hundred, some over a thousand years old.

OEL and art?

The focus of the painting Decameron by Dimitris Tzamouranis is his youngest daughter Zoe (Greek "life"). The picture takes its title based on Bocaccio's Il Decamerone, the famous collection of short stories from the 14th century.

This painting celebrates the fullness and richness of life surrounded by nature.

What could be more suitable for this oil?

For a special edition of ZOE limited to 100 pieces, Dimitris Tzamouranis made an etching with the portrait of his daughter Zoe, colored it and signed it.

ZOE is particularly rich in high-quality ingredients. Here quality is far more important than quantity. The early harvest and the old age of the olive trees result in a low yield. The trees only produce a few inflorescences, but then they put their centuries-old strength into the fruit. A feat of strength that is reflected in the special flavor intensity of this top-class olive oil.

Bottle and box

.

In order to best protect ZOE's high-quality premium olive oil, we chose a bottle made of Miron violet glass.
Violet glass reliably shields the harmful rays of visible light. This means the valuable ingredients are retained for a long time.
In addition, Miron glass allows light of wavelengths between 380 and 420 nanometers (violet and UVA frequency) a penetration of 25%-45% and between 730 and 1050 nanometers (infrared frequency) a transmittance of approximately 60%.
There are voices who say that this is particularly beneficial for natural products.

We deliver the bottles in a high-quality gift box.
The highlight: this box can be opened like an altar. On the inside there is a section of the painting by Dimitris Tzamouranis as well as all the important information about our olive oil.

The almost black bottle made of violet glass from Miron and the gift box are printed with a painting by Dimitris Tzamouranis. Our premium olive oil ZOE is pure (100% Koroneiki), self-produced, certified organic, extra virgin. It comes from a grove with trees that are several hundred, sometimes even over a thousand years old.
