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.
