Planting our own fruits and vegetables gives us the opportunity to control the products used to our restaurants and to provide greater variety, freshness and taste to our guests. Consuming organically grown food is the only way to avoid chemical poisonous substances present in commercially grown food.
It is our firm belief that investing on planting organic fruits and vegetables is a direct vote for a sustainable future for the many generations to come. The Oceanis Farm came into reality in 2012 when the hotel’s owner decided to fulfil his passion about agriculture and merge it with his second passion, hospitality.
Following his ancestors’ knowledge on agriculture, he decided to cultivate his father’s farm with some common vegetables, like courgettes, lettuces, cucumbers and tomatoes. The gifted soil of the estate offered a total cultivation of approximately 28 tones which was not robust enough to supply all of our produce needs, but it was a great start.
Five years later, in 2017, the farm has expanded rapidly both in variety and in size, covering 215 acres and cultivating 45 different types of plants, ranging from extra virgin olive oil and wine to exotic fruits. The total production of 2017 was 146 Tones, giving us the privilege to offer to our valued guests an experience of eating fresh raw materials in great quality throughout the season.
Aloe vera is also known as medicinal aloe and has been used throughout history to treat both internal and external maladies. Being a great natural moisturizer, aloe vera keeps the skin well hydrated and enhances its elasticity.
The “Drosou Estate” extra virgin olive oil is produced from century-old olive trees from “koroneiki” variety. Since ancient times they are known for their fruity taste, small acidity and shining color, making it perfect for Mediterranean cuisine, salads and sauces.
Drosou Estate red wine is produced in Kos, in our vineyards close to the city hills from Syrah&Merlot varieties. The strong Aegean sun gives the grape its ruby red color and the gifted soil its full bodied taste. Before being bottled, it is matured in French oak barrels for 5 years. Our second wine, Drosou Estate white wine, is made from the marriage of the fruity Sauvignon Blanc and the crispy Assyrtiko, offering you a complete wine experience.
**Our wine can be tasted in our restaurants and bars, while it is also available at the mini market of our hotel in a special travel package for your luggage. You can also find our olive oil in a luxury glass bottle and in a special travel package to take it with you at home.
