Our olive roots are in Greece
Like those of Aristo, La Belle Excuse producer. The family-owned olive groves are in Chora, a small village of the Trifilia region situated in the Southern Peloponnese. For thousands of years this specific area has been recognized for its olives and the exceptional quality of its oils. Though Aristo’s life is now firmly rooted in Quebec, each year he returns to the family groves in Greece to renew his connection with his culture and take part in the harvesting of the olives, ensuring that each and every litre of oil is pressed as per the highest of standards. In doing so, La Belle Excuse earns the personal stamp of approval of its discerning producer.
