A tale of Mesimeri. The middle of the day.

A tale of Mesimeri.
The middle of the day.

READ THE STORY

After 12, the sun reaches its highest point in our homeland. It takes us back to our innocent childhood summers. Full of light and afternoon naughtiness. They had the smell of nature. Fertile soil and loaded trees. They dived in the sea and played tag in the centuries-old olive groves. These afternoons nurtured the dream in us. To cultivate the land that gave us birth. To embrace the trees and their fruits with respect. That is how MESIMERI came to be. Extra virgin olive oil.

MESIMERI OLIVE OIL POEM

READ A POEM

“Inside trees bathing in the sun and fruits, it matured along with us. The dream of a summer afternoon which you are now holding”. Our connection with the land. The images of its traditional cultivation. They planted in us all its qualitative and emotional values. They kept them alive until an extra virgin olive oil was created. Fruity, bitter, spicy. With tomato leaf aroma, freshly-cut grass, olive tree leaves, herbs and nuts. MESIMERI is our poem, which we want to be recited in the kitchens of the world.

Τhe Dreamers.

Our admiration for the olive tree culture and an ambitious dream.

They created an idea. The unique experience of the Greek summer afternoon – the Greek mesimeri. It starts from the extra virgin olive oil and reaches as far as the Mediterranean sun.

Low acidity, taste, fragrances and nutrients are untouched.

From the trees to the oil mill.

HAND TO HAND

Every November, the harvest is the celebration of the summer afternoon – the mesimeri. The fruity trees are calling us, people everywhere, spread olive nets, branches that are shaken with care to avoid damaging the crop. The olives are harvested from the trees and in a few hours they are squeezed by cold pressing. Without waiting. Keeping their low acidity, taste, fragrances, colour and nutrients intact.

Limited production.

DROPS OF QUALITY

Olive trees under the abundant Greek light extract fresh olive juice in a natural way. Some of them being centuries old. These trees, around which we hid during our childhood summers, are the ones we grow, look after and prun. One by one. With a local approach and limited production, we create a premium olive oil. The limited number of production and our principle for every harvest not to exceed 3 tons, give MESIMERI the value of a delicacy.

The first crop brought the first international prize.

DROPS OF QUALITY

MESIMERI was awarded the GOLD AWARD in the Quality Awards category in the international competition: Canada International Olive Oil Competition 2021.

In 2023, MESIMERI was awarded with the BRONZE HEALTH & NUTRITION OLYMPIA AWARD, organized by the WORLD OLIVE CENTER NGO.

This award proves the high polyphenol levels of MESIMERI E.V.O.O., a testament to its excellent product quality.

Stay tuned for the next awards!

In a summer afternoon - a mesimeri - the trees are bathed in sunlight.

LET'S GO FOR A WALK

Paniperi is our home. It is to the olive-growing hills overlooking the Messinian Bay that we returned after years. In the family fields that extend to South-West Messinia, under the abundant Mediterranean light, we let memories and ideas go free. Influenced by the ‘Farm to Table’ philosophy, we grow their precious trees and harvest their fruits. Creating land products. Their name, the Greek word ‘afternoon’, evokes our childhood summers in the fields.

Fertile soil of Messinian land.

LET'S TALK ABOUT HISTORY

The trees and fruits of Mesimeri are produced in Messinia. Messinia is located south western Greece with a glorious past of 4,500 years. Always fertile, it was conquered and enslaved by the nearby Spartans who exploited its fruits for military reasons. Over the centuries Messinian land remains the land of fruits and their juices, therapeutic herbs, olive oil and wine. It is inhabited by people who grow up with the products it bears and who learn to respect the miracle of fertility that is happening on this land.It is with the same respect that they cultivate it without destroying it. It is with the same respect that they share its products with their friends around the table on a Sunday. The products of Messinia and its “wet gold”, as its olive oil was described by Homer, are on the shelves of large markets in the world with a protected designation of origin. In Messinia you will find the village of Paniperi, a village full of greenery, high up on the mountain, which, as can be seen from its name (pano = over + iper = and above), overlooks the Messinian bay.In this small village of 270 inhabitants, extra virgin olive oil is produced, pure and unspoilt, just like the land producing it.
