In the Vatika Village of Laconia, homeland of the Spartans, lies a true heaven for the cultivation of olives. Among centuries-old ruins, near an underwater ancient city, under snow covered protective mountains comes this renowned extra virgin olive oil, Laconian Legacy

“My name is Metaxia, in Greek, this means ‘silky’, typical Spartan humour. Yet nothing about Laconia is ‘silky nor smooth’. Not even close! People here fight every day in the grove, people in touch with their legacy, who know exactly who they are and where they are heading.”

“Our oil is in our DNA, a part of our everyday life, our past and our future, our culture. Generation after generation since the glorious times of ancient Sparta” – Metaxia Retzeka
