Greek diet, as a foundation of the Mediterranean diet and cuisine, is a centuries-old eating lifestyle, linked to our cultural identity and traditions. Noted as one of the healthiest diets in the entire world it is based on sustainability, balance and well-being having as a top ingredient: the extra virgin olive oil.
Extra virgin olive oil, the juice of olives, fruits of Greece’s sacred tree; the olive tree. Due to its phytonutrient richness, it offers numerous health benefits which extend to most of our body systems as it contributes to a balanced diet. Also used for cosmetic reasons, olive oil is considered one of the best natural remedies for skin care.
It has emollient, moisturizing and antiseptic properties and can be very effective against dry skin while nourishing and strengthening it.
Thanks to its unique climate, unspoiled flora and divergent landforms our homeland, the Greek island of Lesvos (Mytilene), has been producing, since the ancient times, goods of high gastronomic and nutritional value adding to wellbeing.
Lesvos is the largest island in the North Aegean Sea and Greece’s third largest island, five nautical miles from the Turkish coast, at the opening of Adramyttinos Gulf. Characterised as “the garden of the Aegean”, Lesvos is renowned for its rich flora including olive trees, various orchards and aromatic herbs, its vibrant ecosystems, its climate and its divergent landforms.
No wonder why Lesvos has such a long history of olive oil production; archaeological finds have brought to light a Bronze Age olive press dated back to 2800 - 2000 BC!

Lesvos Gold® as a premium extra virgin olive oil has the finest balance in terms of flavor, aroma, color and acidity levels. It is produced only by mechanical extraction methods with no chemicals applied, comes only from first cold pressing and has an oleic acidity level of less than 0.35 percent. Acidity level is the most important factor which determines the olive oil’s supremacy. It is the percent measure of the free fatty acid content; the lower the acidity the better the olive oil. It is the freshness, the quality and the acidity that makes all the difference!

Cotinos (or kotinos) is the wreath made of olive branches that was given as a prize to the ancient Olympic Games’ winners. The olive branches used for cotinos were intertwined into a circular form that was worn at the winner’s head. These olive branches were taken from the wild-olive tree that grew near the temple of Zeus at Olympia and it was considered to be sacred. At the ancient Olympic Games there was only one winner per event, which was honored, praised and highly respected. It was held that cotinos was conveying to the winners all divine powers.
For us, Greeks, the olive tree is being found at the very beginning of our history. It is part of our traditions, of our worship and an integral part of our table as well. Produced by the finest collection of the most famous olive oil Greek varieties, from Kalamata, Crete and other selected regions of Greece, Aspilos Elaia stands as a promise of gastronomical excellence.
“Every fruit hides a little history of this world. Olives are not just the trees, dear Kostakis. Olives are our story. If you do not keep them unspoiled, you are not worthy of their bounty.” These were the words of our grandfather. This is our commitment. And now, as we are getting older, we are passing this commitment to our children, the 4th generation of olive oil traders. What if the protagonists change? The values remain unaltered! Aspilos Elaia is the promise, Aspilos Elaia is our olive oil. With dedication and consistency, from our family to yours!
