Atrapos, Mendenitsa, Central Greece
Atrapos is based in Mendenitsa, a small village in the Kallidromon Mountains of Central Greece. The mountain village is surrounded by springs, a rich vegetation of stone pines, fir, oak and junipers, as well as an impressive diversity of wildlife. The region’s microclimate is influenced by the sea, only a few kilometres beneath the mountains, which makes it ideal for olive tree cultivation. Atrapos forgo the utilization of chemical fertilizer and other sprays in favour of quality and sustainability. Their organic farming processes contribute to the restoration of a balance in nature; the humus soil is enriched, resulting in the growth of healthy, robust plants and high-quality produce. The same care is taken with the processing of their olives, which is done exclusively by natural fermentation and without the use of any chemicals.
