The blessed gift of our groves
In the sacred land of Ancient Messini, surrounded by old myths and eternal beauty, blessed Olive Trees facing the Temple of Asclepius are washed by the crystal waters Clepsydra Spring, on the foothills of Mount Ithomi. Right here, where the nymphs raised Zeus, we obtain our country’s most precious offering, the Olive Oil.
This is the place where the idea of Olivian Groves came to fruition in 2019. The idea soon led us to the Northeast of the Peloponnese, in another olive-growing land, Argolida.
Right where the golden Peloponnesian sun touches the restless blue sea in Ermioni Argolidas. Right where the Dryopes and later the Dorians settled in order to cultivate the land, Olivian Groves has created a contemporary irrigation network. Meeting the needs of a large olive grove, our agronomists and crew meticulously follow agricultural practices that treat each of the thousands of trees in a completely different way.
Our groves near Ancient Messini, washed in the mythology flowing through the nearby source of Arsinoe, have since ancient times been the place where Asclepius’ patients came to rest, breathe in oxygen, and take in the benefits of the shade under the olive trees. This is the ideal incarnation of the healing power of nature, as Asclepius himself used Olive Oil for his therapies.
