A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE MELPIA REGION
“Melpia” used to be a small town of ancient Arcadia, today belongs to the prefecture of Messinia.
Located close to Lykosoura to Nomia mountains and Pausanias mentions it as ‘village’. In the small city there was a temple of Pan. The name comes from the nymph Melpia courses of Pana. Belonged to Andania, region of ancient Arcadia, along with Figalia and Alifeira.
The site of the ancient small city is not yet found, but a village named “Kato Melpia” exists in Messinia. It is a relatively mountainous area with a nice view. The olive trees are between 50-100 years of age. Although relatively colder, compared to our other groves, Melpia region has a rather stable climate and a soil reach in minerals.
As with the rest of our olive groves we use no chemical fertilizers and we follows the same strict standards and procedures for cultivation and production.
