Product History
Olives are considered to be the most important fruit in the Mediterranean. A symbol of peace, serenity, fertility and rebirth, the olive tree truly is a “gift from god“. Since ancient times, the olive tree was awe- inspiring due to its capacity to never dry out: new shoots sprout from the dry trunks and in this way, the tree is regenerated once again. In Greece, several varieties of edible olives can be found, namely the olives from Kalamata, Amfissa, Thasos etc. The color (green, brown-violet, black) depends on the degree of ripeness of the fruit. Scientific studies have confirmed the high nutritional value and the antioxidant action of edible olives, as they are rich in fiber, minerals, monosaturated fats and vitamin E.

The bond that Vasilis Aivazoglou and Mary Caropoulou have with olive oil is of long standing: they both come from a family of olive growers who, as early as the previous century, have been growing olives in the most prominent olive growing and olive oil producing regions of Greece. In 2012, they decided that their olive oil deserved its own special name: G.E.T. | Greek Exquisite Tastes. They couldn’t have possibly named it anything else since their olive oil encompasses all the exquisite goodness that the Greek land has to offer. Their next step involved collaboration with a young olive grower whose olive groves lie in Monemvasia, Lakonia, in the region of the Peloponnese. They chose him for his fierce passion for wholesome production through the use of organic methods that are free of chemical pesticides and fertilizers at each and every stage of olive oil production. Respect for nature; devotion to the environment; faith in agricultural practices that abide by natural cultivation methods; processing and standardization that are as thorough as they are stringent: those are the tenets Vasilis and Mary’s products are anchored on so that their products may be literally worthy of the name G.E.T. |Greek Exquisite Tastes.

Visit the region: Lamia

Lamia, hailed as the Noble Lady of Roumeli, is the capital of the Regional Unit of Phthiotis, Region of Central Greece. Mythological accounts are unclear as to the origin of the city’s name. One account says that it was built by Lamos, son of Hercules and Omphale, Queen of Lydia who was the one to purchase Hercules from Hermes after Hercules had been sold as a slave per Zeus’ command. Another account maintains that it was built by mythological Lamia, daughter of Poseidon and Queen of the Trachineans. Whatever the legendary case may have been, the founders of the city chose its location very carefully: Situated as it is at the foothills of Mount Othrys, near Sperchios River, Lamia acquired great strategic significance. Archaeological studies have revealed that the area has been inhabited since at least the Bronze Age (2800-1100 BC). Due to its strategic position, Lamia’s past is an illustrious one. Silent witnesses to that past are Lamia’s ancient monuments, churches, and historical locations which unravel the city’s history before the eyes of visitors to the area’s lovely sights.

Lamia’s Medieval Castle is the most famous one. Built on a rocky hill, it towers over the city and affords a panoramic view of the enchanting Valley of Sperchios River, the peaks of Mounts Oiti, Kallidromo, legendary Othrys, Parnassos, Ghiona, and of the Malian Gulf. Lamia’s historical Bridge of Alamana retains unaltered the collective memory from the battle fought there and the tragic defeat of Athanassios Diakos and his men by the Ottoman troops in 1822. A visit to the nearby site of historical Thermopylae is “must” as it is the location of the Battle of Thermopylae known the world over. In 482 BC, at the narrow coastal passage that existed there in antiquity, 300 Spartans under King Leonidas of Sparta clashed and held off King Xerxes’ considerable Persian forces until betrayed by Ephialtes. The last historical stop is Anthele, an early centre of the Delphinian Amphictiony and the place of origin of the Greeks’ civil history. The breathtaking sights around Lamia, its cultural heritage, and the warm hospitality lavished by Lamia residents on the area’s visitors have made the city a pole of well-deserved tourism attraction.
