Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 500ml Bottle, LIA
LI? premium extra virgin olive oil is sealed in a white bottle which promises to sprinkle this Messenian bliss over your family or friendly gatherings. Its exceptional taste, flavour and features are the results of painstaking efforts during the whole production procedure; from cultivation to storage. At Lia, they combine traditional methods of cultivation with modern techniques in order to respect the sustainability of the ecosystem. They still pick their olives by hand just like their parents used to do, seeing that neither the fruit nor the tree is damaged, using only linen sacks and take the fruit to the oil press the very same day of its harvest to assure that it retains all its properties until further procedure. They exclusively use the cold extraction method to make sure that the nutritional values as well as the taste and flavour properties of the fruit are transferred into the oil pulp. They do everything that is required, so that LI? comes to us right out of our greek roots of bliss, your LI?.
Panagiotis and Konstantina, inherited just 19 olive trees in 1975. They raised us and grew our grove with the same care and affection. As the olive trees grew in number, their children grew up as well playing hide-and-seek behind their aging trunks and branches which reached out for the sun while loitering among the thick shadows of those trees. Therefore, they created a land property of unique beauty within the unsurpassed beauty of the Messenian landscape. The family’s Messenian roots, are what they have learnt to love and appreciate. They continue the circle of life just like their trees do by fostering the same values they have been taught by their parents while cultivating their grove and soul. The trees are not only memories of the past but also tools of inspiration for the future.This is what made them produce “LI?'”. Their bliss in a bottle that is, their olive oil on our table; it will offer us along its superior flavour a warm and true smile coming from that family.
