The 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. When combined with traditional methods of cultivation with modern techniques, the results is LIÁ, one of the most awarded extra virgin olive oils in all of Greece.
Respecting the sustainability of the ecosystem, the producers still pick their olives by hand just like their parents used to do, seeing that neither the fruit nor the tree is damaged.
Only linen sacks are used and fruit is taken to the oil press the very same day of its harvest to assure that it retains all its properties.
They exclusively use the cold extraction method to make sure that the nutritional values as well as the taste and flavor properties of the fruit are transferred into the oil pulp.
They put LIÁ olive oil into a well- designed opaque white bottle to keep your oil away from light and to preserve its top quality. Finally, they store the bottles in a cool place of regular temperature.
