My name is Nick Manolakakis and I live in Ridgefield, CT with my wife Julie and our two children, Alison and Evan.

We have been importing our 100% pure extra virgin olive oil from our family's olive groves since 2004. Over the years, Julie and I shared our pure premium Greek extra virgin olive oil with family, friends, colleagues and neighbors. We were so encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive response, that we were determined to share our quality product with the most discerning consumers and food enthusiasts everywhere.

In 2014, we founded our small business - Manolakakis Family Groves LLC and decided to begin importing our olive oil in larger quantities and officially bring it to market. We branded our extra virgin olive oil as "AlEv Oil Co.", which was inspired by our children.
