with Dimi­tris Tzamouranis

01

Top class Greek extra vir­gin oli­ve oil

ZOE is the limi­ted artist’s 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 made from not qui­te ripe Koron­ei­ki olives.
The oil is green, natu­ral­ly clou­dy and very aromatic.

The histo­ry 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 heri­ta­ge of grand­ma Ant­hou­la and grand­f­a­ther Sotiris.

This oli­ve oil is the quint­essence of the Tza­mou­ra­nis family.

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

Grand­ma Ant­hou­la owns, main­tains and mana­ges the oli­ve gro­ves of the Tza­mou­ra­nis fami­ly. Through her, the grand­son Ama­de­us Tza­mou­ra­nis dis­co­ve­r­ed his love for oli­ve oil at an ear­ly age. Even­tual­ly he beca­me the owner of an oli­ve gro­ve hims­elf and foun­ded OEL with friends.

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

The­re is still a tre­a­su­re tro­ve of tra­di­tio­nal Greek reci­pes to be discovered.

Stay tun­ed!

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

At first he had only pain­ted in his spa­re time. But after an exhi­bi­ti­on in Pirae­us, which sold out, he gave up his mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring job and made art his profession.

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

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

Dimi­tris Tza­mou­ra­nis was born in Kala­ma­ta in 1967. He first 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 dedi­ca­ted hims­elf to figu­ra­ti­ve painting.

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

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

Oil and art?

dimitris-tzamouranis-decameron

The focus of the pain­ting Deca­me­ron by Dimi­tris Tza­mou­ra­nis is his youn­gest daugh­ter Zoe (“life”). The pic­tu­re bears its tit­le in refe­rence to Bocaccio’s Il Deca­me­ro­ne, the famous collec­tion of novel­las from the 14th century.

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

What could be more appro­pria­te 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.

This spe­cial edi­ti­on is avail­ab­le on request by email: amadeus@oel-berlin.de

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 form only few inflo­re­scen­ces, but then put their cen­tu­ries-old strength into the fruit. A feat of strength that is reflec­ted in the inten­si­ty and spe­cial fla­vor of this top-class oli­ve oil.

Bot­t­le and box

exklusive olive oil

In order to pro­tect the high-qua­li­ty pre­mi­um oli­ve oil from ZOE in the best pos­si­ble way, we deci­ded on a bot­t­le made of Miron vio­let glass.
Vio­let glass reli­ab­ly shiel­ds the harm­ful rays of visi­ble light. This pre­ser­ves the pre­cious ingre­dients for a long time.
In addi­ti­on, Miron glass allows light of wav­elengths bet­ween 380 and 420 nano­me­tres (vio­let and UVA fre­quen­cy) to pene­tra­te 25%-45% and bet­ween 730 and 1050 nano­me­tres (infra­red fre­quen­cy) to pene­tra­te about 60%.
The­re are tho­se who say that this is par­ti­cu­lar­ly bene­fi­cial for natu­ral products.

We deli­ver the bot­t­les in a high-qua­li­ty gift box.
The high­light: this box opens like an altar. On the insi­de you will find a sec­tion of Dimi­tris Tza­mou­ra­nis pain­tings as well as all the important infor­ma­ti­on about our oli­ve oil.
