Our Olive Grove
The Karali family olive grove dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. Our estate is located on a small hill overlooking the Mytilene port. Taking advantage of the soil’s rich limestone substrate, our olive trees grow amphitheatrically on man-made stone terraces, forming a magnificent sight.
Lesvos’ ancient history can be traced back as far as 4,000 B.C. Home to some of Greece’s most famous intellectuals, the island’s contribution to the arts is remarkable. Notable artists from Lesvos include ancient poet Sappho, noble prize winner Elytis, prose writers Marivilis and Venezis as well as talented painters such as Theophilos and Iakovidis. Lesvos is equally gifted in natural beauty, with a prodigious amount of olive trees and pine trees contributing to its majestic scenery. Moreover, due to its fertile land surrounded by sea, Lesvos is also distinct for its culinary tradition as wellas for its food products such as Ladotyri, Feta, salted seafood, etc.
The cultivation and processing of our olive oil is completely organic. In order to ensure our olive oil’s low acidity level, premature olives are carefully hand-picked before being pressed via the method of cold-extraction. The oil press we partner with holds strict health and hygiene standards and is certified according to the quality standards of ISO 22000:2005 while holding additional certifications, ISO/TS22002-1:2009 and FSSC 22000 for the bottling of olive oil.
