BELIÁ PREMIUM OLIVE OIL is a multi-awarded Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
A superior product that stands out for its high phenols’ concentration, very low acidity percentage, a medium intensity fruitiness and a perfectly balanced presence of the bitter and pungent elements a good EVOO should have.
Beliá stands for B(-iologiki) Eliá. Biologiki is the Greek word for organic. Eliá is the Greek word for the olive fruit.
Our private mountainous olive grove is located outside the small village of Mouzaki, in Messenia prefecture, in southwestern Peloponnesus. It is ecologically cultivated and harvested.
At an altitude of 500 mts. and a distance of just 12 klm from the Ionian Sea, the use of pesticides and other chemicals is unnecessary. Our olive trees benefit from the unique microclimate of the area and the fertile soil of this blessed region of Greece for their growth. The constant presence of a beehive in our field (a natural proof of a healthy environment), ensures that all the aromas of the wild plants and herbs of the surrounding area are being transferred on our olive fruits. Freshly cut grass, wild oregano and thyme, mountain tea and lemony flavors leave a pleasant and lasting imprint on our senses.
We handpick our olives at the right time, usually late October – early November, just as they start turning purplish. The gathered olives are being transferred within few hours to the two-phase olive mill and cold-pressed immediately, never exceeding a temperature of 25°C while doing this. This way, we keep the acidity percentage very low (almost always <0,3%) but most important the high concentration of the precious phenols remains unaltered.

The above, apart from the obvious (that we produce a very good olive oil), also state consistency. We consistently produce a very good olive oil.
Our olive trees benefit from the unique microclimate of the area and the fertile soil of this blessed region of Greece for their growth and in return they give our EVOO the aromas and flavors of freshly cut grass, wild oregano, thyme and mountain tea.
