In the Aegean island of Lesvos, where nature meets tradition you can taste the famous Olive Oil, which traditionally holds a high place in the olive oil market in Greece and abroad.
One of the most lavish goods produced by the Greek land is virgin olive oil. As the main component of the Mediterranean diet, sculpted from the purity of nature and the beneficial effect of the sun and the Mediterranean climate, the Greek olive oil is famous for its rich texture, vibrant flavor and great nutritional value, that give it its beneficial health properties.
The 10 million olive trees which overwelm the island of Lesvos, since antiquity generously gift the locals with the natural treasure of olives from which the high quality virgin olive oil is produced. With its features consisting of low acidity, light taste and unique aroma the Lesvian virgin olive oil is unlike any other, having made its own distinctive course throughout the centuries.
A course that the Papadellis family has embraced with love, making sure to offer responsibly and devotedly the incomparable taste and value of the extra virgin olive oil of Mytilene. The extra virgin olive oil Sapfo of Mytilene, which it has offered for the past year on the market and on our plates, stands out for its unique flavor.
