The 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 south of the Peloponnese.  For thousands of years this specific area has been recognized for its olives and its olive oil’s exceptional quality. Even if Aristo’s life is in Quebec, every year he returns to the family groves in Greece to take part in the culture and harvest the olives, making sure that each liter of oil is pressed following the highest standards.   Therefore, La Belle Excuse has the personal stamp of approval of its producer.
