THE SMALL VILLAGE
with the big heart
It is very easy to be enchanted by its stone architecture, its spectacular view or its countless olive groves that surround it. Theodoropoulos family would not imagine anything else but to name their exquisite olive oil, Lezi.
In 1947, grandfather Thanasis started his first olive grove in the area of Lampena near Kalamata. Known as Lezi at the time, it was in this enchanting place with stone architecture, spectacular views and countless olive groves where grandfather Thanasis took care of his olive trees with his bare hands and a lot of love and care.
The maintenance and extension of the family’s olive groves was largely achieved by Fotis, the youngest son of the family, when he joined the programme of organic farming becoming one of the first farmers in Messinia to enroll.
Today, Thanasis Theodoropoulos who represents the third generation of the family, continues the tradition producing premium extra virgin organic olive oil from over 1,500 olive trees.
