From our family tree, to your family table.
Our family tree shares common roots with our olive trees. Panagiotis and Konstantina, our parents, 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, we 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, we created a land property of unique beauty within the unsurpassed beauty of the Messenian landscape.
Our Messenian roots, our family roots, our tree roots are what we have learnt to love and appreciate. We continue the circle of life just like our trees do by fostering the same values we have been taught by our parents while cultivating our grove and our soul. Our trees are not only memories of the past but also tools of inspiration for the future.
This is what made us produce “LIA'”. Our bliss in a bottle that is, our olive oil on your table will offer you along its superior flavour a warm and true smile coming from our family.
A flavour of our land history spices your everyday life.
Our land is Filiatra, a picturesque provincial town in Messenia, Greece – situated close to Mount Egaleo and cooled by the breeze of the Ionian sea – whose exceptional quality of soil interacts with the unique microclimate. All these factors contribute to olive cultivation in optimum environmental conditions.
Our land is both mythologically and historically tightly linked to two ancient Greek cultural centres; Nestor’s Kingdom and Ancient Messene. These strong bonds with the past are a basic source of inspiration, in order to offer you one of the fundamental goods of Messenian culture which we deeply respect: our unique extra virgin olive oil.
Our land welcomes you. Visit our olive tree grove orchard to experience the harmonious match between past and present. Take a walk to find out our secrets and our traditions. Gaze into the horizon and let yourselves dream while tasting our Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
The fruits of our efforts offered to you.
“Our tree” is not only a symbolic way to talk about LIA, but it’s also literal: When we were kids, our parents decided to expand our orchard and we helped them by planting some of the trees with our own hands. Now, the trees we planted and inherited offer us their fruit and your olive oil in abundance.
Our tree belongs to Koronèiki variety which is a native one in Greece. Its fruit ripens between November and December and produces olive oil of excellent quality whose special features comprise a combination of a fruity, bitter and pungent taste and flavour apart from its exceptionally low acidity.
We love our tree and cultivate it with great care and respect to the environment by following the norms of good traditional agriculture that our parents have taught us. We follow the rules of nature which, in turn, pays off with its bliss: LIA olive oil.
