The Island of Corfu is famed for its delicious olives. The Island is said to have some four million olive trees, some more than 500 years old. During the four hundred years of Venetian Rule, the Corfiots were paid to plant and cultivate olive trees, replacing the old trees with new vigorous olive groves that flourished in Corfu's lush climate.

Theotoky History

The Theotoky family is one of the oldest families in Greece and the Estate has been in the family for generations. John Theotoky, father of the current owner, Georges Theotoky, studied at the famous Universität für Bodenkultur (University for Agriculture) in Vienna and was deeply attached to the land.

John devoted himself to politics after the tragic death of his brother Nicolas Theotoky who, as Minister of War, was executed in 1922 by the opposition, after the loss of the Asia Minor Campaign. He served three times as Minister of Agriculture and in 1950 as his father had been before him became Prime Minister of Greece.  

Georges Theotoky, the son of John Theotoky, took over the Estate in the 60's, at a time when wine making in Greece was almost nonexistent, in a commercial way. The development of the Theotoky Estate, has been George's and his Italian wife's Claudia's passion ever since and their delectable red and white wine has become among the most celebrated estate bottled vintages in Greece. Under George's direction, the cellar has been completely renewed and modernised, bringing its production methods up to modern high standards, whilst maintaining the traditional appearance of the buildings which house the old barrels and bottles.
