Product Description
"Moria Elea" is crafted by Olive Vision in Ermioni, Argolida, in the southern part of continental Greece. Behind this monovarietal's premium quality there is the Greek Mythology legend about "Moria Elea", the first olive tree bestowed by the goddess Athena on the Athenians. Fully aware of the "heavenly" quality of its extra virgin olive oil, Olive Vision named it after "Moria Elea" to pay tribute to that first olive tree of Olympian quality. By crafting an extra virgin olive oil whose exquisiteness can only be compared to that of the first olive tree, Olive Vision aims at familiarizing consumers the world over with Greek mythology and history and at promoting the purity of Greek products. "Moria Elea" comes from the highly acclaimed Manaki olive variety whose unique sensory attributes elevate it to iconic status. Harvesting does not begin until the olives have reached that perfect point of balance in their life cycle. First, the olives are hand-picked between mid-October and late November. Next, they are carefully placed one by one in specially designed plastic crates which allow the air to circulate and prevent the olives from suffocating. The olives are transferred to the olive making facilities daily where they yield their olive oil by means of cold extraction. Before storing the ensuing olive oil, Olive Vision subjects all of its olive oil samples of all batches from each variety to in-depth analysis for quality, authenticity, and contamination. Then a certified olive oil taste panel runs an organoleptic (sensory) assessment on the same samples. The olive oil is then stored in stainless steel containers in a cool place away from direct sources of sunlight at a steady temperature of 15°C with a nitrogen-filling system in place to ensure that this cold-extacted olive oil fully retains its aromas. Moria Elea Monovarietal Manaki is an extra virgin olive oil of exceptional nutritional value and superior taste as it comes from "Manaki", one of the most coveted Greek olive varieties which yields its best self in Argolida's microclimate. It has a hard-to-resist fruity yet mild taste and complex aromas ready to captivate even the most demanding of connoisseurs.

Product History
Extra virgin olive oil is the purest form of oil that comes straight from the olive trees, without having undergone industrial processing. It has a strong fruity taste and the distinct aroma of freshly cut olives. A pleasant bitterness and a short- term burning sensation in the esophagus can be present. With a striking 75% of Greek olive oil production to be extra virgin, Greece holds the first position worldwide in its production. Expressed in oleic acid, Extra Virgin Olive oil is the olive oil whose acidity does not exceed 0.8%. Acidity is one of the main criteria for the olive oil quality and the lower the acidity, the higher the quality.

Olive Vision

Olive Vision is a company established in 2011 by Kostas Balafas and George Dimarakis. Though fairly new, Olive Vision is a fast-growing company with expertise and specialization in producing, standardizing, and trading extra virgin olive oil. Olive Vision’s founders are not strangers to the field. They have coupled their love and devotion for olive growing and olive making with their long-standing marketing know-how to arrive at the crafting of “Moria Elea”, a range of exceptional extra virgin olive oils.

They have set their heart not only on crafting a product of excellence but also on pampering their consumers with a one-of-a-kind gourmet experience. To do so, they are growing Koroneiki and Manaki, two of Greece’s best olive cultivars, in the family olive groves in Ermioni, Argolida, in sunny southern Greece where their storage and standardization facilities are also located.

The production process starts with olive growing, continues with the harvest, and ends with the crafting of the olive oil, its storage, and bottling. Under the guidance of a team of experts and following a rigorous pattern of soil, water, and leaf analysis, Olive Vision goes on to implement the best and safest growing practices, all anchored on an Agricultural Production Integrated Management System. Depending on the olive variety, harvesting takes place between mid-October and late December and never before the olives of each variety have reached their perfect point of maturity. The olives are then hand-picked with great care so as not to have their sensory traits compromised. The end result is “Moria Elea”, a highly acclaimed extra virgin olive oil which has been the proud recipient of many an international award both for its quality and its elegant packaging.

Argolida

Argolida extends to the eastern tip of the Peloponnese peninsula. It constitutes a challenge for historical, cultural and naturalistic exploration. Nafplio, also known as the "first capital of Greece” during recent historical times, manages without a doubt to enchant its many visitors. Its cobblestone streets, Venetian castles, neoclassical mansions, Turkish fountains, historical churches, and its boat rides on crystal clear water, all add to the magic of this magnificent and beautiful town. One is awe-struck when visiting the ancient palace of Atrides in the area of Mycenaes, the cyclopean walls of ancient Tiryns and the outstanding ancient theatre of Epidaurus – a theatre most famous for its excellent acoustics and where many a visitor goes during the Summer Festival, to watch a play. Low hills with olive groves and vineyards, enormous rocks with deep gorges and prickly pear trees, along with totally wind-protected coves with fish taverns, all form the natural landscape of Argolida
