Patima – The end of a Vendetta

The word Patima refers to the olive oil extraction process using large millstones. Patima is also the name of a village located in the Northwest Crete, a place of natural beauty and flora variety. However, the village is known amongst the locals for holding the most notorious Vendetta of the modern times. One that depopulated the village, leaving the area desolated.
In that land the Alexakis family has owned olive groves for many generations. Today the youngest son of the family, Stelios Alexakis, is approaching the traditional principles with a modern perspective to launch Patima olive oil, a brand new olive oil of deep color and tasteful sensation. We are proud to offer this Cretan land gem to you through our website.
