The name “Nostalgaia” comes from the combination of the Greek words “Νοσταλγία” (nostalgia or desire) and “Γαῖα” (earth in ancient Greek). Behind the name “Nostalgaia”, is the love for the uncultivated Greek land and the desire for the pure products that it generously offers us.
Our family tradition has been inextricably linked with olive trees for more than 4 generations, as growers and producers of extra virgin olive oil. Some olive trees that stand out in our estates are centuries old. About 25 years ago, when the principles and standards of organic cultivation became known in Greece, our olive groves in Achaia and Laconia were directly and formally included in the Certified Organic Cultivation.
Our olive groves are located in the Peloponnese, more specifically:
In a small, traditional village of the county of Achaia, named “Agrilia”, which is 50 kilometers in a straight line from Ancient Olympia, the sacred site of the Olympic games. The toponym came from the wild – native olive trees that grew on the ground due to the appropriate climatic and soil conditions.
In a picturesque, semi-mountainous village of the county of Laconia, “Vasilaki”, which has a long tradition in olive cultivation, as it is the main occupation of almost all the inhabitants of the village.
We are not only standardizers, but we take care and cultivate our own olive groves. Knowing the requirements and good practices of quality olive oil production, we seek partnerships with certified producers, with whom we share the same philosophy for high production standards with respect for the Greek land and the natural environment.
Our goal is to combine modern methods of standardization and quality control with the olive growing tradition of our country, in order to offer the consumer a pure, quality and at the same time beneficial for their health product that will trust and include in their daily diet.
