ASKRA The Valley of Muses
We started "building" a strong brand name, "ASKRA THE VALLEY OF MUSES", as a direct reference to the place and the name of the area inspired by the face and the meaning of the muse.
We created our logo - trademark for the exportable products of the company LYMPERIS ESTATE, based on the meaning and the face of the Muse for the main product of the company, the Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
OUR RICH HERITAGE
ASKRA The Valley of Muses - Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Coming from a family with strong ties to olive oil and its trade, Lymperis Estate was founded in order to cover the whole procedure: from cultivating our olive trees to extraction with modern, ecofriendly procedures and bottling this top quality product, here in our birthplace, the homeland of Muses.
Being the fourth generation, we decided to continue cultivating the family olive trees and upgrade the past family resources by using the most modern olive mill equipment, aiming at extracting olive oil in its best form. Our goal is to preserve all the natural elements of the olive and produce an olive oil rich in polyphenols and nutrients. Therefore, we have chosen to plant more than 4000 new olive trees the last 3 years along with the cultivation of our existing olive groves, all with the most natural methods.
ASKRA tastes olive oil every year with highly experienced testers and really choose the best to make ASKRA Olive Oil. In the selection process, two stages of analysis must be passed so that olive oil is extraordinary.
Ascra or Askre was a town in ancient Boeotia which is best known today as the home of the poet Hesiod. It was located upon Mount Helicon, five miles west of Thespiae.
