Grown between orange groves in a private estate of only 5,000 olive trees and off the coast of Southern Peloponnese, Greece, these olives have a fresh, unique flavor. Made from 100% unblended single variety, koroneiko, by a fourth generation olive oil family, Laconiko Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a well-managed and high quality extra-virgin olive oil. With family in the United States (two brothers live in Gainesville!, VA) and in Greece, they pride themselves on creating a superb quality resulting in award winning Olive Oil. As the family says, Laconiko gets its name from the word laconic, which is also derived from Laconia by analogy and means to express a quality thought or idea using a limited amount of words as the Spartans were reputed of doing by the Athenians. With this in mind, the family remains determined to not mass produce, but focus on elite care of their trees and producing one-of-a-kind olive oil. Laconiko is definitely a house-favorite!
