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.

GAEA
Gaea was founded in 1995. Our name didn’t come about by accident; in ancient Greek mythology, Gaea was Mother Earth—a symbol of fertility and the goodness of the earth. As such, our vision has been to introduce the world to the benefits of the Greek Mediterranean diet by combining exquisite Greek products based on olive oil with our penchant for tradition and simplicity. Gaea is much more than elegantly-packaged wholesome foods and fine ingredients. It is a genuine philosophy of life, at the core of which is a deep appreciation for nature. We’ve always favoured non-aggresive harvesting over large volumes and high yields. And although we invest heavily in research and employ cutting-edge technology, we never stray too much from time-honoured practices. Our goal is to become international ambassadors not just of top-quality olive oil products, but of a better, healthier, more fulfilling way of eating—and living.

Lakonia

Laconia can be summed up in one phrase: Magical World. Just like the magical worlds of fairy tales, it captivates one and all with its spellbinding beauty, making it everyone’s fervent wish to drink in that beauty even for a moment! Its history and tradition, its mountain and sea vistas, its genuine people and their deep-seated values, all compose a paradise on earth that no one should miss. The prefecture of Laconia is the southernmost prefecture of Peloponnese and Continental Greece. It gives to the Aegean Sea, the Gulf of Messinia, and the Laconian Gulf.Lakonia could be described as a crossroad where natural beauty meets ancient history. It is the southernmost prefecture of continental Greece. Most interestingly, it invites its visitors on a trip in history through its numerous monuments, extending from ancient and byzantine times to the modern days. Discover legendary Sparta with the glorious byzantine castle city of Mystras and the medieval castle of Monemvasia! Visit the byzantine churches and monasteries, take a walk along the cobblestoned alleys and spend some time admiring the mansions with the arches and the Venetian crests. All these monuments help us explore the rich history of the area. On the other hand, the landscape is characterized by great natural beauty, ideally combining the roughness of the mountains and the serenity of the sea. Experience its magical influence! The rough beauty of Mani, the emerald waters of Elafonissos, the one and only Greek fjord in Gerakas are truly worth exploring! You can also add the valley of Evrotas river, the picturesque Gythio, the countless fishing villages, natural Diros caves, the villages on Mount Taigetos and Parnonas, green gorges, watermills, caves and waterfalls. All these make a heavenly landscape!

Laconia, just like the rest of the Peloponnese, is renowned for its wealth of highly-praised, all-natural local products which one can find at each and every corner of it: its top-quality olive oils, its famed wines, its pure honey, the homemade, traditional “spoonful” preserves, and its aromatic herbs are the basic traditional and delicious products inviting you to taste them. It is on the wholesomeness and unrivalled flavor of those products that local cuisine relies to usher you into unforgettable gourmet experiences and mold the Laconian land’s social culture and local character.
