Minerva Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Minerva Horio Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Olive Oil is from Greece. Horio in Greek means “village.” Greeks are very attached to their Horio; one’s village is typically a place that young Greeks visit every year, for holidays or vacation. Horio is the place from which the family elders pass on traditions, culture, family secrets and recipes, inspired by the fresh ingredients by which they are surrounded. It signifies family, authenticity, serenity, warmth, relaxation and, to most, home-made delicacies.
