Terroir by Alexandra Manousakis is a selection of local products inspired by the rich history and natural beauty of Crete. Consisting of an olive oil bottle and sea salt jar, Alexandra conceived of the line after leaving the US and returning to Crete in 2007 to manage her family’s wine business. Designed by Marios Karystios, a designer based in Greece, the vessels for Terroir’s products were influenced by Alexandra’s love for simplicity and her tendency to support local communities and charities. Each bottle for the olive oil and sea salt jar is handmade by a local ceramist, and a percentage of the profits is donated to ELEPAP, a special school for children with disabilities.
