Today over 6000 olive trees thrive on the Domaine – some over 1000 years old. Greek sailors founded Marseille around 600 BC and it is believed that they introduced olive trees to the Provençal landscape. Souviou is home to 12 varietals of olive trees each bearing a unique fruit used in our expertly blended oils. Each fruit is picked by hand to make some of the best olive oil on earth. All Domaine Souviou oils are Extra Virgin and exclusively from the first cold-pressing to extract only the purest ingredients.
