Governor's Olive Mill


Located in the village of Agios Matheos, around 20km south of Corfu Town, the Governor's Olive Mill is a family-run mill, renowned for producing an Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

The outstanding olive oil, named after the First Governor of Greece, Ioannis Kapodistrias (1776–1831) - who was born in Corfu to a distinguished Corfiot family -  is produced by the  “Lianolia” olive tree variety, native to Corfu and the Ionian Islands region. The Governor's Olive Oil holds precious secrets carried through three generations of The Dafnis family, who have have been handling with great respect the centuries-old ''Lianolia'' variety olive trees in the family grove and passed their expertise from one generation to another.  One of the factors that make this Olive Oil stand out is the unusually high polyphenol content which is what gives olive oil its healthy benefits. and makes it beneficial to anyone's diet and well-being. Some of the awards that the Governor's Olive Oil has received include: Gold medal- Los Angeles International extra virgin Olive oil Competition (Packaging design),  Silver medal- Tokyo International extra virgin Olive oil Competition (Taste) and Great Taste Awards UK.

The family welcomes hundreds of visitors to the Olive Mill everyday. Visitors get the chance to walk around the ancient olive trees (many of which are estimated to exist for more than 5 centuries) and hear about  visit the 15th century olive mill and taste the special selection of extra virgin oils, flavoured olive oils, olives, vinegars, salts and more at the gourmet store.
