Introducing Vassilis™
A Taste of the Golden Age


vassilis salad dressing

It all began with a dream. In 1974, brothers George and Vasilios Koutsogiannakis came to America from Athens, Greece, with the belief that tradition and family can make a difference. By 1980, the Koutsogiannakis brothers opened Athens Restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina.

Celebrating the magnificent tradition of Greek cuisine - which dates back to the Golden Age of Greece, emphasizing a diet rich in olive oil - Athens quickly became one of the most successful family restaurants in South Carolina.

Family's Recipe
Since Athens beginning, one of the most popular items on the restaurant's menu remains its original Mediterranean dressing. Based on an Old World recipe passed down from George and Vasilios' mother, Panagiota. The dressing's gourmet flavor attracts the interest of Athen's customers from points as far away as Canada and Switzerland.

Today, Vassilis (pronounced vah sill ee ss) Greek Classic Dressing is designed to meet the growing market demand for Panagiota's authentic, original recipe.

The Adventure
Exotic and delicious, Vassilis is like taking a culinary adventure to the Greek Isle. For the best results, pour Vassilis onto your next salad with feta cheese, or use it to marinate vegetables and chicken. At any meal, Vassilis timeless flavor accents Mediterranean and American dishes.
  Only The Best
Vassilis is made with only the best ingredients. Like imported olive oil processed with centuries-old Greek methods, and oregano leaves grown on Mt. Olympus-all topped with herbs and white vinegar that will tease your taste buds.

Available in an 12 oz. retail bottle, Vassilis is a blend of the old and the new. With its unique label - depicting a contemporary version of classical Greek pottery art - Vassilis fine packaging and unique flavor will attract customers to specialty and gourmet food store shelves.

Realizing A Dream
Today, George and Vasilios are naturalized American citizens. With the establishment of the Vassilis trademark and its distributor company, G & V Food Products, Inc., the Koutsogiannakis brothers have realized a dream: "Continue the proud legacy of their family recipe into the 21st Century."
