After completing a Pharmacy Degree thirty years ago, Lou Wilson embarked on a journey through Greece.
Traveling unlocks the taste buds and the intellect, and she was incredibly fortunate to have had multiple opportunities to revisit. It is the captivating history, lively culture, and breathtaking scenery that continue to draw her back.
It's there where she discovered Phileos. From her initial encounter, she understood the exceptional nature of extra virgin olive oil. The wealth of nutrients it possesses and she was aware of the favourable effect of the polyphenols on her health and well-being.
She started Olea of Monemvasia in 2016, the official importer of Phileos in Australia.
Phileos is an award winning EVOO is sourced from the finest olive groves in Molaoi, Asopos & Monemvasia in Laconia, Greece, with warm rocky hillsides along the Aegean Sea providing an ideal microclimate.
