When, in 1975, Christina’s parents inherited 19 olive trees in the Messenia region of Greece, they were inspired to cultivate a legacy. They, with their then young children, planted the groves that today produce Christina’s oil. A combination of exceptional soil quality and a unique micro-climate is supported by Liá’s dedication to traditional and non invasive agricultural methods, and they have produced an oil with wonderful finesse and character.
The olives are still picked by hand, after which they are transported to the press in linen bags, to ensure that they stay in optimum condition. The packaging design is inspired by a traditional olive press, and this, combined with its modern, sleek bottle, speaks of both Liá’s connection with its past and its commitment to future innovation in Greek olive oil.
