Eleia Koroneiki Variety Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 16.9 fl. oz
Eleia is a new and fresh brand emerging from a centuries-long tradition and aspiring to achieve a harmonious blend of the past with the present. Their olive trees were planted by three generations of Greeks, Alexandros Spiliadis, his grandfather, and great-grandfather throughout the years, span over a century. The unique quality extra virgin olive oil they offer us has been highly valued for decades now. Eleia emerged from the global need and awareness for high quality and elegant products whose origins can be clearly traced by the consumer. Aiming to a strictly personal engagement and product distribution, Eleia wants to achieve unique quality and aesthetic pleasure, and satisfy even the most demanding of consumers.
Eleia possesses one of the largest olive groves in Greece with around 40,000 trees in the Lechaina Plains in the South Ilia prefecture. Our olive grove spreads over even soil with slight variations in morphology which, coupled with the highly sandy soil, contribute to rainwater drainage and to maintaining a dry climate — a prerequisite for the growth of olive trees. The cultivar we produce is our native Koroneiki cultivar, which gives us a distinctly fruity and aromatic extra virgin olive oil with an indisputably Greek temperament. In addition, aspiring to meet every potential desire, we have planted and we grow two more cultivars, Arbequina and Chiquitita, which will soon allow us to produce different blends with unique features.
