Overview

Koronekes is a family business. We make extra virgin olive oils, from Koroneiki cultivar olive trees, in our own traditional olive mill. Learn about organic biodynamic farming and olive oil production. What is an extra virgin olive oil? What is a first cold pressed versus cold extracted olive oil? What is Fleur d'Huile? Come and taste our olive oils in an idyllic scenery, amidst the olive groves. Please do contact us before visiting! Send us an email or call us and we will be happy to help you organise your visit. There is no public transportation to our olive mill. The closest bus station is the Palace of Knossos. From there you can take a taxi, it is less than 10 minutes away. Directions from Heraklion: Drive to the palace of Knossos. Continue on the main road after Knossos (towards Archanes) until very small village of Spilia. Before the Shell gaz station turn right and left immediately. You are now on the road that leads to the mill. Drive straight for about 2.5 km until you see our Koronekes banner. There turn left. In 500m you will see a blue gate, you have arrived!

Delightful staff, very knowledgeable and they speak great English. We got to taste a lot of different olive oils and did a blind taste test which was lots of fun. Highly recommended.

We have visited the mill after a underwhelming tour of Knossos and it was much more fun than expected. The backup tour guide (Poppy) was very friendly and showed us around the manufacturing process and guided us through “organoleptic testing” (ie tasting) of olive oils...More
