THE WISE OWL
UNFILTERED EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
The 30 year old experience of Nico Lazaridi in viticulture and winemaking has prompted us to deal with the same passion with olive oil, a product that is perfectly identified with Greece and an integral part of the Mediterranean diet. We chose this extra virgin olive oil to remain unfiltered in order to highlight its natural fruity flavor, color and nutrients that remain richer and unaltered.
