NIOÉLIA is an extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) of Koroneiki variety, rich in phenols. Its name comes from the merging of the words “NIO” and “ÉLIA”. “NIO”, in the local dialect of Zakynthos where we come from, means each year’s new olive oil, while “ÉLIA” refers to the ancient, blessed tree which offers us its wonderful juice, the olive oil. The “NIO oil” is an expression that accompanies us from our childhood. When we saw our parents and grandparents, at the beginning of October, prepare for the new olive oil season by making wooden rods and ladders, preparing at the same time the sacks, the sieves, the nets and the oilcloths. Back then, we were eager to taste the “NIO” together with freshly baked bread as it flowed from the separator in the olive mill. To feel that characteristic bitterness in the throat, where we now know that it is due to the high concentration of phenols. So we invite you to get to know NIOÉLIA, a hand-picked superior quality olive oil, produced for over a century with a lot of love and passion for you.
